Nisqually Official Bill Kallappa Brings Tribal Perspective to State Board of Education

In focusing on tribal communities, policymakers and educators tend to look at what’s missing. That, according to Nisqually Indian Tribe Interim Education Director Bill Kallappa, is a misconception. “Native communities are asset based,” he says. “There’s a lot that we can give to the public school setting, whether that’s history presentations or sharing our culture with students in the K-12 system. Often, people want to look at deficits when we really have things to contribute.”
