About Our College
Although it is a public institution open to students of all backgrounds, the school maintains a deep connection to the Tohono Oʼodham culture. As a tribal college, TOCC places a special emphasis on not only serving the educational needs of its local residents, particularly the Tohono Oʼodham Nation, but also preserving and transmitting the Oʼodham Himdag (cultural way of life). As part of their curriculum, all students are exposed to the Himdag, which encompasses a wide array of traditional beliefs and practices of this native group.
