Northwest Indian College is a fully-accredited Tribal college chartered by the Lummi Nation. 

Its primary goal is to serve the educational and training needs of Pacific Northwest Tribes and their people. NWIC’s name in the Lummi language, XWLEMI ELH>TAL>NEXW SQUL (the people’s education), is the basis for the college’s mission, which states: Through education, Northwest Indian College promotes Indigenous self-determination and knowledge.

Our main campus is located on the Lummi Reservation near Bellingham, Washington, with extended campus sites situated on reservations in Washington and Idaho.
