Abstract

Following the failure of federal policies (or lack thereof) to open the doors of higher education to Native American students, several tribal governments decided in the 1960s to create their own colleges. Their success contributed greatly to the development of higher education for Native students. Today, even though the vast majority of these students attend mainstream universities, the educational, social and economic impact of tribal colleges on Native communities as well as their relevance as instruments of Native American sovereignty ensure their continued growth.
