Some Native American tribes offer special opportunities to their graduating members like stoles or even assistance in purchasing graduation regalia. EPIC’s Multicultural Programs team has been reaching out to Oklahoma tribes to see what assistance and opportunities they offer for their high school graduates.

Below you will find a list of tribes listed in alphabetical order, just click on the green plus sign by the name of your tribe to learn more. Please note that this list will continually be updated as we learn about additional opportunities.

EPIC proudly encourages all graduates to decorate their caps and to showcase their heritage and honors at their commencement ceremony.
