National Indian Education Association Convention 2013

 

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – More than 1,500 people from around the nation attended the annual National Indian Education convention and trade show in Rapid City.

KNBN-TV reports that one of the association’s main goals is to promote greater freedom and educational standards in Native American classrooms.

Suzanne Whitelance, a co-chair of the local planning committee, says the convention that ended Saturday encompassed a lot of public policy issues such as current curriculum.

The Rapid City Convention and Visitors Bureau estimates the convention had an economic impact of nearly $1.6 million on the western South Dakota area.
