What is Indigenous Service Learning?

Indigenous Service Learning (ISL) at Northwest Indian College promotes experiential learning to sustain the connections of people, place, and the natural world. It is grounded on indigenous ecological knowledge that life is interconnected.  People and place are interwoven in patterns that are reciprocal, cyclical, and animated with spirit. This program fosters serving and caring for one another in these relational circles.

Indigenous Service Learning combines curriculum with hands-on, experiential learning that meets the needs of Native peoples and their communities and deepens indigenous connections, while building leaders for the next generation.

At Northwest Indian College the world is our classroom and through service we are planting the seeds of change.
