MissionMIGIZI advances a message of success, well-being and justice for the American Indian Community
What We DoIt's alarming that over a time period of 4 years, only one demographic has had no increase of graduation rates in the state of Minnesota. Native Americans in high school are graduating at only 50.8% (MDE, March 5, 2020). This is 19.9% lower than the next ethnic group and with roughly 170,000 Native people in Minnesota, this is just unacceptable.
We at MIGIZI have been fighting these statistics for over 40 years.
We at MIGIZI have been fighting these statistics. We provide students in 5 school districts academic and cultural support, two training programs (FPP, GJP) that ensure a professional resume, and opportunities for participants to work with partnership organizations.
