Save the Indian Heritage Program
Save the Indian Heritage Program – November 20, 2013
Bring your drums! Please WEAR RED SHIRTS at the rally in a show of unity and solidarity as a collective voice opposing the closure of Heritage and in support of the new k-8 'Native Heritage' ASI school and Indian Heritage at Ingraham/West Seattle school (Fall 2014). After nearly 40 years of operation, the Seattle Public Schools (SPS) announced the closure of the American Indian Heritage Middle College High School, a.k.a. Indian Heritage, located at 1330 N. 90th Street, Seattle, WA.
José Banda, the Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools, presented a public statement in July 2012 expressing commitment to consult with the Native community on ‘next steps’ in consideration of revitalizing the Indian Heritage, the pending BEX Levy, demolition of the Indian Heritage facilities, and the preservation of the murals created by Andrew Morrison.
