The National Gathering is a place where educators and partners can share their voices and work together to improve the educational outcomes of K- 12 Indigenous students. Our annual conference attracts hundreds of educators and partners each year. Educators get the opportunity to network, share successful practices, and participate in over 50 workshops, where they learn ways of improving the educational outcomes of K-12 Indigenous students.
