It is the mission of the Shoalwater Bay Native Education Department and Education Committee to provide our members with the highest quality educational opportunities possible. The Education Department and Committee strives to deliver services to all members fairly and equitably.
To preserve, protect, and promote the heritage and history of the collective members of the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe and to actively promote and facilitate the ability of the tribe to engage in cultural activities. This is done through historical research and archiving, resurrection of cultural practices and promotion of living cultural practices.
The department actively works with the Shoalwater Bay Youth Program, Tribal Community and other groups at the Federal, State, and local levels.
