Founded in 1974
The Western WA Native American Education Consortium/WWNAEC is made up of a group of public school educators in Western Washington who work with Native American students. Each of our individual programs are funded through the federal Office of Indian Education Title VI program. The WWNAEC meets every other month during the school year at various sites within our region and we hold a two-day conference in late February at the Emerald Queen Casino (Puyallup Tribe) in Fife, WA.
We provide Merit Awards to high school seniors (awarded in June) to help pay for some first year college bills.
