Northwest Indian College is honored to be a part of the Nisqually community, located between the Western Washington cities of Lacey and Yelm. The college is currently located at the Nisqually Tribal Library, and will move to the Walker House in mid-May 2013.
In following the Nisqually Indian Tribe’s mission of perpetuating our home and our culture by helping our people thrive, Northwest Indian College students at Nisqually are encouraged to develop themselves and discover ways to contribute to their communities and families. They learn how to understand and support the educational goals of the Nisqually Indian Tribal Community, especially by improving the lives and well-being of tribal members through social and cultural programs, education, economic development and resource protection.
The Nisqually student body represents various surrounding tribes, including Puyallup and Muckleshoot. Other tribes represented are Blackfeet Nation, Hoopa Valley, Sitka and Quinault, to name a few.
