Red Lake Endazhi-Nitaawiging Greater Minnesota
Mission: Our mission is to prepare each student for college with an enhanced knowledge of the Ojibwe language, culture, leadership, and environmental stewardship.
Vision: At Endazhi-Nitaawiging, our vision is to create confident leaders grounded in their true inherent identities and to ensure that they are academically, socially, and spiritually prepared to positively change the community and world.
The educational philosophy and school culture at Endazhi-Nitaawiging will be grounded in the Seven Values that inform the school’s Vision and Mission: manaaji’idiwin (respect) nibwaakaawin (wisdom), zoongide’ewin (courage), enigok izhichigewin (commitment), mashkawi’ayaawin (resilience), bagosendamowin (hope), and niigaaniziwin (leadership). This is much more than a commitment to traditional western academic success.
