Positive Indian Parenting is a culturally-based training of trainers parenting curriculum, and has been used across Indian Country for decades. We invite you to join us at our September Virtual Training Institute for our PIP training.

More about PIP: Positive Indian Parenting, or PIP, is an eight week curriculum, developed by NICWA, which provides practical and culturally specific training for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) parents. The training helps parents explore the values and attitudes expressed in traditional AI/AN child-rearing practices and apply them to modern parenting. The curriculum draws on the strengths of traditional Indian parenting practices using storytelling, cradleboard, harmony, lessons of nature, behavior management, and the use of praise. It also addresses the historic impact of boarding schools, intergenerational trauma and grief, and forced assimilation of parenting.
