The Education Department of the Oneida Nation of the Thames is committed to helping Oneida Nation members achieve their academic goals and aspirations through the delivery of quality educational programs and services. The Education Department currently operates Oneida Nation Head Start Program, Oneida Child Care, Standing Stone School and Oneida Language and Culture Centre. It also advocates for post-secondary students attending educational institutions locally, nationally, and internationally.
The Oneida Nation of the Thames maintains that all aspects of the child’s physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual needs must be considered in the education process. This holistic approach must be a reflection of the values, beliefs, language and culture of our people. Learning will be enhanced through active participation in the classroom and through community involvement in the education process. Education is regarded as a life-long process that begins in the cradle and continues to adulthood. It is the process whereby our unique identity as a distinct Iroquois Nation is transmitted from one generation to the next. It is, in fact, the key to our survival. We therefore maintain that the Oneida Nation of the Thames has an inherent duty to educate our children and that we have a responsibility over the curriculum and the language that is taught to our children.
