Native Environmental Ambassadors

The Mashpee Wampanoag Native Environmental Ambassadors (NEA) are a group of tribal youth who use their voice to advocate for and protect all natural beings. 

The Native Environmental Ambassadors (NEA), are looking for interested tribal youth to join. Youth ambassadors must be ages 15-23 and have an interest in advocating for our land and environmental justice. This is a great way to learn more about tribal sovereignty, community outreach, and traditional ways to battle the current climate crisis. The Mashpee NEA meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM in Mashpee (or virtually for those who live out of town). If you or your child may be interested, please contact Youth Advisor Talia Landry at [email protected].

Multi-Year Grant Programs 


Native American Teacher Retention Initiative (NATRI)

The Education Department received the Native American Teacher Retention Initiative (NATRI) grant at the end of last year and will spend the next five years working through this grant to support Indigenous teacher retention in k-12 schools.

The grant provides a $3,000 stipend per semester for Indigenous students from a federally recognized tribe who want to go into teaching and helps cover fees associated with getting the MTEL licensure. This is a great opportunity not only for high school students pursuing higher education but also for tribal members looking for a career change who may be interested in teaching. For teachers already in the field, NATRI provides a $500 stipend per semester, professional development opportunities, and other forms of in-field support.


American Rescue Plan – American Indian Resilience in Education (ARP-AIRE)

The purpose of the American Rescue Plan – American Indian Resilience in Education (ARP-AIRE) program is to support Tribal education agencies (TEAs) in the provision of direct services to Indian children and youth.
