Native American/Alaska Native Events

  • Clatsop Community College is the first higher education institute within the Chinook Indigenous lands to grant free tuition to Chinook Indian Nation members. On Saturday, May 6th, during the North Coast Inclusion Seminar hosted at the CCC campus, CCC President Chris Breitmeyer formally announced that the college will grant members of the Chinook Indian Nation free tuition in the form of a tuition waiver as done for other federally recognized tribes and that the Chinook Nation deserves the same respect as all other federally recognized tribes, a status that the Chinook Indian Nation has fought to achieve for over 20 years. Members of the Chinook Nation may take advantage of this tuition waiver by showing their Chinook Indian Nation membership card when applying and registering at CCC.  A soft implementation of the tuition waiver was put into effect this past spring term with some Chinook Nation members taking advantage of it.
