Virginia Indian Nations Summit on Higher Education Feb. 18-20

On February 18-20, the William and Mary School of Education hosted the Virginia Indian Nations Summit on Higher Education  (VINSHE).  This was the first time in the summit’s ten-year history that it will be held at the College. Karenne Wood, one of the summit’s founders, was the keynote speaker at this year’s conference, and she focused on American Indian education in Virginia. Wood believes the summit is unique way for William and Mary to show an increased desire to be more engaged in furthering opportunities for Native Americans. Members from the 11 state-recognized tribes as well as students and administrators from William and Mary, UVA, and Virginia Tech attended the event. A highlight of the summit was a reception in the Great Hall, in which the participants were personally addressed by Reveley.  The conference addressed important issues, such as the lack of opportunities traditionally available to Native American students.
