The Language Attitude Institute engages with educational ecosystems by building transformational relationships to support the classroom.

The Institute anchors its roots on the teachings of Elders which has led us to become a research-action center that honors the cyclical nature of time.

Our elders maintain our cultural libraries and ground our
purpose, power, and identity. The founding Board of Women, collaboratively, exercise their leadership building from their multiple ways of speaking, being, believing, and interacting.
