Mission / Vision Statement

The Dokis Education Authority recognizes the importance of educating our people. We will reinforce the concept that our Native children are the key to our future as a people.

The educational system, which we offer our children will prepare them to be productive citizens of the world.

Our children will grow up with the knowledge that our Native heritage is something to be proud of and understand the contributions that our history has made to society.

Our children will be prepared to face the challenges of technology with the tools to enter the professions or trades and return to our First Nation with acquired skills and knowledge and for the betterment of our Native society.
