American Indian Education
The American Indian Education Program at Rochester Public Schools works to provide American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, and Canadian First Nations systematic opportunities to culture, language, and student advocacy. Opportunities include student groups, 1:1 support, family engagement, access to traditional teachings, and educational networks that support Native students.
Meet our American Indian Liaison
My name is Regan Kluver, and I am the American Indian Liaison for Rochester Public Schools. I am a proud Anishinaabe woman from the White Earth Nation (Gaa-waabaabiganikaag) in northern Minnesota. I attended Winona State University before coming to Rochester Public Schools, and I am starting my 3rd year in the district. It is my honor to serve our students and provide cultural resources, materials, spaces, and supports, to fit the needs of each student. When I am not at work, I am taking care of my new daughter, visiting family, at Target or beading.
If you would like additional information regarding American Indian Education programming at RPS – whether that be more about what we do, or how to get involved, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Until I see you again! Giga-waabamin miinawaa!
Join our Parent Education Committee
The American Indian Education Parent Committee functions to ensure all Indigenous students are successful in Rochester Public Schools. Native student advocacy is accomplished by the committee in several ways.
The committee works to guide the American Indian Education Program and provide oversight on the federal budget. The committee also works to partner with the school district at a board policy level.
If you are interested in joining this committee or volunteering for any of our events or activities please call (507) 328-4335 or email Regan Kluver, Native American Liaison.
