ISLA’s Vision

Today’s Native students become confident and highly qualified leaders and innovators for the 21st Century.

Culturally Responsive Teaching Strategies

Consistent with how Native American children learn outside of schools –
• In their Homes,
• From their Elders,
• In their Communities
• In Tribal Settings.

ISLA’s Mission

To help tribal and urban educators focus on Native students’ strengths, so that those students leap ahead to learning, mastery, and achievement.
