Past, Present and Future. Dull Knife Memorial College (Indian Action Program Inc.).
Five vocational training programs as well as academic coursework are offered on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation by Dull Knife Memorial College. Established and operated by the Northern Cheyenne, and located in Lame Deer, Montana, the college was chartered by a tribal ordinance in 1975. Approximately 75 trainees are currently involved in the vocational courses and the academic students number between 50 to 120. Accreditation is granted through Miles Community college, 110 miles away, and through this school students may earn Associate in Arts or Associate in Applied Science degrees. Certificates are awarded to those completing the vocational programs in agriculture, building trades, heavy equipment and related mechanics, plumbing trades, and welding. Each program seeks to make its students fully employable in its respective trade. Trainees are paid an hourly stipend while they are in training and are usually placed directly in jobs when they graduate or leave the college. The adult education program offers basic courses in reading, math, and language arts, and five other classes are offered in the General Education Development preparatory program. Other classes are offered in various life skills, driver education, blueprint reading, vocational math, teacher certification, and photojournalism. The reestablishment of a CETA Business Occupations program offering secretarial, clerical, and other office related skills is anticipated. This document describes the founding of the school, its special programs, auxiliary services, and staff organization. (DS)
