Mission & Vision

 
Mission
 
The Sovereign Community School will activate the next generation of indigenous leaders by engaging our youth with rigorous, culturally relevant curriculum that challenges them to understand and affirm their roles as citizens of our many Native nations.
 
Vision
 

Our school is born from the ideas of the Indigenous community of Oklahoma City and from them we believe first that meeting student wellness needs is foundational to our children's academic success.

We believe that rigorous and culturally relevant classroom content increases student engagement, learning, understanding and critical thinking while also elevating student consciousness about justice for our communities.

 

We believe that creating a space for all indigenous people to build community, fellowship and solidarity in Oklahoma City strengthens our kids, families and our nations.

 

We recognize that the wisdom of our Grandmothers and Grandfathers is key to realizing our mission and that by placing that wisdom foremost we will activate the next generation of holistically healthy indigenous leaders and empowered citizens of this country's first nations.
