Welcome to the website of the Minnesota Indian Education Association (MNIEA). This program exists to promote education and learning to bring people a healthier, brighter future. Educaton and learning provide a path to personal development and growth by creating a better understanding and knowledge of the world around us.
Understanding dispels mystery and dissolves fear enabling people to grow, develop and mature to help others and make our world a better place for everyone. Fear is man's greatest enemy. Once a person can conquer their fears, they can then truly live their life the way it was intended.
People always strive for a better way of living and to grow and develop their own selves into a better version of what they were. This is natural and desirable, because as human beings we are the highest form of life on this Earth. It is in our nature to grow, become better at doing what we do and to make a better life for ourselves and our families and those around us.
The seat of all learning and knowledge is our minds and our minds are ours to control and to use in the best way that we can. In fact, the only corner of our world that we have total control over and that no one else can take away from us is our mind. We can use our minds to create ideas and it is from ideas that come ways to improve our lives. Whether it comes as innovation and invention or as a plan for advancement, we have the power to create in this way and it is our greatest gift.
We should be grateful for this miraculous gift and use it wisely.
