By working together with schools, parents and communities, APS Indian Education Department works to develop enhanced and supportive Indigenous educational opportunities for all Native American students by increasing knowledge of Native values through teaching language and cultural differences.
The Indian Education Department (IED) was established as part of the Albuquerque Public School district in 1974, with the primary purpose for advocacy and representation for the 115 different American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribes enrolled in the school district. There are approximately 5,650 or 5.1% AI/AN students currently enrolled in APS.
