  MHA Education Department      
  Our priority is to see that our youth and communities receive a quality education that encompasses
and nurtures their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Through programming, community
and school partnership we can help impact and reach our full potential as individuals and healthy
Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara community members.
  The strength and survival of our tribal nation depends on the nurturing of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and
Arikara history, language, culture, social and spiritual knowledge, while encouraging and maintaining
the highest education standards.
  It is the educational mission of the MHA Education Department to promote and foster lifelong learning
for the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara people, and to protect the cultural integrity and sovereignty of the
Three Affiliated Tribes.
