In 2016, Pinoleville Pomo Nation was awarded a 4-year Indian Education Demonstration Grant #S299A160006 under the Department of Education to support Native American students (pre-K to 12th Grade) to achieve college and career success. This project partners with Ukiah Unified School District (UUSD), collaborated with other tribes in the greater Ukiah area and non-profits to implement three major strategies to address critical challenges faced by the Native students in our area.
These strategies included:
1.) Community Cultural Education
2.) Enhancement of Academic and Family Support
3.) Mentoring and Academic Counseling
