This is the 8th National Native American Language Summit based on the requirements of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Department of Education’s ( ED) White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education (WHIAIANE), Department of Health and Human Service’s Administration for Native Americans (ANA), and the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Education (BIE).

Together our diverse stakeholder communities now have a venue to share the challenges and paths to success in teaching Native languages. Our goal through the summit is to identify ways to further support communities teaching their Native languages, improve accountability for educational progress , provide measurable goals to show our success and encourage our youth to gain the skills to speak their language. We will discuss the challenges and successes of measuring oral and written American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Pacific Islander language learning and will share promising practices.
