Indigenous Early Learning Collaborative: Advancing community-based inquiry and equitable early learning opportunities for Native children & families: 2021-2022


The Indigenous Early Learning Collaborative was envisioned and designed in partnership and consultation with more than 50 different Tribal individuals, educators, and representatives who come from different levels of early childhood learning and care organizations, Tribal departments of early childhood education, and center-based leadership. The concept of having an intellectual home for facilitation of Community-Based Inquiry was of great interest. Native educators, early learning professionals, and leaders could engage in learning about how to generate local solutions to historical and current dilemmas of practice. Together, First Light Education Project (Denver, CO) and the Brazelton Touchpoints Foundation (Boston, MA) lead this national initiative, working in equitable partnerships with four Tribal/Native partner sites located across four states, from east to west: Michigan, Minnesota, Washington, and Hawaii.
