Proctor Academy Native American Connection

The Lakota phrase for recognizing that there is a universal connection between all of creation, has been part of Proctor’s fabric since the mid-1980s. The Native American presence at Proctor Academy has taken many shapes over the course of the last thirty eight years. Our commitment to cultivating relationships is a reflection of the school’s mission and deep respect for the value of Native perspectives.  The intention is to honor and educate our community about Native American life through student and faculty exchange.

We hope you reach out to us with questions about Proctor's Native American Connection!

Understanding Proctor's Native American Connection

Proctor seeks to weave a Native American education into our community. Our relationship with the Lakota, Mohawk, and Navajo Nations provides an opportunity to learn and grow through knowledge of their cultural experiences. Our relationships have the capacity to increase our self-awareness and improve our orientation to global learning.  Though not exclusive, Proctor’s relationship with the Lakota is strong.  Their beliefs hold a profound message of connection; of the need to treat all of creation with respect and compassion; and to take responsibility for ourselves, our community, and our planet.  These lessons echo deeply held beliefs at Proctor.  They echo our core values; Compassion, Responsibility, Respect, and Honesty. We are very excited to be continuing to invest our hearts and our time in these efforts.
