The mission of AIS has been a simple one: to create programs and generate funding that will help Native Americans receive a quality education, while still preserving their culture and honoring their heritage. In fact, AIS believes that it is through education that Native Americans will be able to protect their history. Our goal and hope is that as Natives achieve individual success they'll be better able to provide support for their communities and positive change for future generations.
