NEWS RELEASE FROM THE NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA A&M COLLEGE

Miami, Oklahoma – Tuesday, June 17, 2014 – A representative from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) presented at the World Indigenous People Conference on Education (WiPC:E) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Claudia Little Axe, director of the American Indian Center for Excellence, was selected in January to present at the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education. The conference took place at Kapi’olani Community College Campus on May 17 -24, 2014, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Inspiring, informative and provocative, WiPC:E is the largest venue for indigenous education in the world. Since its inception, the conference has attracted highly regarded experts in indigenous education. The 2014 conference promised to attract educators from all over the world to discuss contemporary movements in education that support unique indigenous worldviews.

More than 2,500 indigenous educators from around the world were in attendance for this year’s conference. Little Axe presented on the American Indian Center for Excellence, and how the center has greatly attributed to the success rate of NEO’s Native American students. The presentation, entitled “NASNTIs: Bridging Native communities in Higher Education,” summarizes with implementation of NEO’s program that the Native American students graduation and retention statistics have improved each year.

“I am very honored and humbled to represent NEO A&M College and the American Indian Center for Excellence at the WiPC:E conference. I have a strongly devoted passion for Indian education, our Native American students and their quest toward higher education. I am so pleased that I was chosen to present on a topic that is so dear to my heart – our Native students’ success rates at NEO A&M College,” Little Axe said.

Little Axe has presented on behalf of NEO A&M College and the American Indian Center for Excellence at the state, national and international level in the last 12 months. First, at the National Indian Education Association (NIEA) in Rapid City, S.D., then at 10th Annual Native American Symposium, in Durant, Okla., and most recently at the World Indigenous People Conference on Education, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
