New Picture (10)

Thank you for showing your interest in CIEA, a forty-four-year-old grass roots non-profit organization. Since you are on this page, we know you care about Native American Indian students. Our organization’s grass roots design allows us to be independent of federal and state funding restrictions. When you join, you will receive a quarterly newsletter, the Early American, and be kept up with current issues, as well as the rich histories of California Native American Indians and CIEA’s beginnings, but we also hope that you will find CIEA a group of talented Indian people who care about the future of our Native American Indian youth with whom you can relate and even share your own talents together. Now is the time to organize for the future, and it is our sincere hope that you will join to help support and create a higher quality Native American Indian Education.

New Picture (10)Start a Chapter!

It only takes ten members to become a chapter, with the rights to have your Chapter Chair represent you on your CIEA Board. Local chapters have found that when working with California Indian Centers, Title VII and Johnson O’Malley parent groups, Tribal TANFs, or other government funded programs, they can organize fundraisers and plan activities (any celebration of Indian Education) with resources otherwise not funded by federal and state programs. Should you wisely choose to start a chapter, please indicate, and we will provide you personal assistance to help, before, during, and after you join. We’d like to be known for solving the important issues in a good way. Help us get there together. Let your voice be heard from the grass roots, on up: Start your chapter today, and become “CIEA-ble”!
