Tribal College Journal
|Publisher||American Indian Higher Education Consortium|
The Tribal College Journal is a magazine published by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC). The quarterly issues address American Indian and Alaska Native higher education. It is a forum for tribal college administrators, faculty, staff, and students, providing discussion for their needs, successes, and evolving missions.
The magazine was established in 1989 in Sacramento, California where it was published for eleven years. AIHEC tribal college presidents resolved on November 14, 1989 to support the magazine and gave it editorial independence as opposed to a typical in-house publication. In 2000, the magazine moved to Mancos, Colorado, in a building where Paula Gunn Allen used to reside.
Since its inception, there have been three editors. Paul Boyer, author and education consultant, was the founding editor. Marjane Ambler, previously editor of High Country News in Lander, Wyoming, held the position for eleven years. Tina Deschenie, the first Native to hold the position, took over in June 2006.
