About Our College

Aaniiih Nakoda College was founded in 1984 by men and women from the Fort Belknap Indian Community Council, Fort Belknap Education Department, and Fort Belknap campus of Dull Knife Memorial College (now Chief Dull Knife College). The leaders wanted to start their own college since off-reservation programs were not adequately meeting the post-secondary educational needs of the community. Today, the college provides academic and vocational training programs and services. The college was charged with preserving and promoting the A'anin and Nakoda languages, cultures and histories. The college has hired many talented young people from within the community since the college is dedicated to a "grow your own" philosophy of developing the community's future leaders.[3]
