Profile

Yellowquill College is Manitoba's first Native-controlled, post-secondary institution. The College opened on October 1, 1984 on the Long Plain Reserve and moved to its current location, 340 Assiniboine, Winnipeg, Manitoba. The school believes that the education of Native people is both the right and the responsibility of Native people. Further, the Native people are capable of determining their own educational needs and planning courses of study to meet these needs. Finally, Native people have the leadership and knowledge needed to implement and maintain an effective post-secondary institution. The Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council has accepted the obligation of administrating the funds provided by the government of Canada for the education of adult Native people. Education and training are an integral part of the process of Indian self-government and economic and social development.
