Yellowquill College is Manitoba's first First Nations-controlled post-secondary institution. The First Nation owned and operated college was founded in October 1984, by the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council.[1]

Governance

The Yellowquill College currently operates under the auspices of the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council.[1] The eight chiefs of the member bands serve as the Board of Directors for Yellowquill College. The College is incorporated both federally and provincially and is a non-profit organization. Yellowquill College is funded by the Manitoba and federal governments, and First Nation Communities in Manitoba and across Canada.

History

Yellowquill College was originally located in the former Portage la Prairie Presbyterian Indian Residential school building on Crescent Road West in Portage la Prairie. Yellowquill College was founded as a manifestation of the 1972 document "Indian Control of Indian Education" by the National Indian Brotherhood/Assembly of First Nations. The college opened with sixteen students.[2] and has had over a thousand graduates.[1] The current campus size is approximately 200 students.[2]

In 2000, the college moved in 2000 to Portage Avenue in Winnipeg.[3] In 2003, the college moved to its current location at 340 Assiniboine Avenue in 2003. In 2012, the college moved into the former Manitoba Hydro building.[2] Offsite locations for the Mature Student high School Diploma program include community partnerships with the Bloodvein First Nation, Long Plain First Nation, and Sioux Valley Dakota Nation.[1]
