Alaskan Inuit Education Improvement Project
Project Summary: Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) Alaska initiated a project to improve Alaskan Inuit education in response to the 2010 Nuuk Declaration where ICC delegates decided to hold a Circumpolar Inuit Education Summit to come up with recommendations on developing culturally appropriate curriculum and other education issues. Following the Nuuk General Assembly, the ICC Alaska board made this effort the number two priority during its strategic planning process. In preparation for the Circumpolar Summit, ICC Alaska facilitated the development of the Alaska Inuit Education Improvement Strategy. Unfortunately, the Summit was not held during Greenland’s chairmanship due to a funding shortfall.
Despite not having a Circumpolar Summit, ICC Alaska continued on and began fundraising to assist in the implementation of the recommendations contained in the Strategy. In 2015, we were awarded a 3 year grant to facilitate the implementation of the Strategy from the United States Department of Education through the Alaska Native Education Program. The Alaskan Inuit Education Alignment Summit is a directive in the Strategy.
A renewed call for the Circumpolar Summit was mandated in the July 2014 Kitigaaryuit Declaration at the Inuvik General Assembly. The Summit is currently planned to be held in Greenland in 2018. We intend to share the results of our Alaska specific efforts at the Circumpolar Summit as well as further build alignment with Inuit across the Circumpolar north to strengthen our collective efforts to improve Inuit education.
