The education of Native people is both the right and the responsibility of Native people. Native people are capable of determining their own educational needs and planning courses of study to meet these needs. Native people have the leadership and knowledge needed to implement and maintain an effective post-secondary institution. The Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council has accepted the obligation of administrating the funds provided by the government of Canada for the education of adult Native people. Education and training are an integral part of the process of Indian self-government and economic and social development.
Yellowquill College is a First Nation accredited educational institute of excellence, preparing and advocating for students to meet the needs of the 21st century and beyond while providing an appropriate environment that preserves and enhances culture and traditional ways.
