The Mohegan Tribe recognizes the extraordinary value of a high-quality education for our children and our future. Part of its commitment to educators and schools includes proudly sponsoring the Connecticut Teacher of the Year program. The Tribe also promotes the importance of educating our students and communities about indigenous history and the contributions that its ancestors have made to our society. Every year, we meet with inspiring educators to congratulate them, learn from their experience, and discuss how native history can be incorporated into their curriculums. We also provide educators with an opportunity to apply for the Mohegan Challenge Grant, which promotes expanding Native American studies in our public schools through a $1,000 grant to fund educational materials for this purpose.
