OFFICIAL WIPCE 2017 SPONSOR:
Over the past 30 years, WIPCE has grown to become a major international event in the Indigenous education movement, hosted triennially. WIPCE 2014 was hosted by the Native Hawaiian Education Association in Hawai'i and welcomed over 4000 delegates from around the globe! WIPCE draws Indigenous representatives from across the globe to share successes and strategies for culturally grounded Indigenous education.
The conference attracts highly regarded Indigenous education experts, practitioners, and scholars. As a result, WIPCE is the largest and most diverse Indigenous education venue in the world. The conference continues to lead the discussion on contemporary movements in education that support Indigenous worldviews.
