The federal Administration for Native Americans awarded the Osage Nation Immersion School a two-year $420,926 grant to help with the cost of hiring three additional staff members, adding two grade levels, developing a five-year strategic plan, and developing standard operating procedures and policies.

The school was founded last year to perpetuate the Osage language for future generations. “This marks the first time since 2005 that the Osage Nation has received an ANA Award for language,” said Osage Nation Grants Manager Chris Standing Bear in a press release.
