Montana Advisory Council for Indian Education
Mission

The Montana Advisory Council for Indian Education (MACIE) was created by the Montana Board of Public Education in 1984 to advise the Board and the Superintendent of Public Instruction on matters related to Indian education. The purpose of the Council is to:

"... provide for more effective and meaningful participation by Indian people in planning, implementation, and administration of relevant educational services and programs under the authority of local school boards."

The council is composed of representatives of the eleven tribal groups in Montana and other groups working in the interest of Indian people.
