Kina (Together)

Boozhoo! Welcome to Kina!

There is nothing more exciting than learning new things and sharing ideas with one another. This philosophy is how Kina’s projects began and still guides us as we continue to grow. Much of what we do has been designed and developed in partnership with area Native American communities. We believe that the communities we serve know what is most helpful for their members and need to be equal partners in what we offer. 

Kina’s projects are built on cultural strengths and ways of knowing. Our projects began in 2016 when the first partnerships were established with area tribal communities to create programs that share the exciting world of science with children in Kindergarten to 6th grade. Since that time, we have grown to include a variety of projects that focus on providing children with opportunities that inspire a love of learning and bring families together in the learning process. By doing this, we hope that the passion for learning will continue through a lifetime and pass to those who follow.

One of our goals is to see today’s youth enter science and choose to address the needs of Native Americans. We make a special effort to remove educational barriers so that everyone can enjoy learning and exploring. Our programming is designed to be based in communities, so they are easily accessed by the community members. We also have an expanse of learning materials, including information about nutrition and wellness, all available at no cost. 

The Kina project team hopes you enjoy your visit to our site and exploring all that we have to offer.
