What We Do
Our Takoda (Dakota for “Friend to All”) programming addresses educational disparities on four fronts: training, career coaching, adult education and an alternative high school.
Our accredited, alternative high school — affiliated with Minneapolis Public Schools — serves students ages 14-21, focusing on core academic competencies while maintaining a strong connection to American Indian culture.
