Abstract: Tribal Colleges are institutions of higher education chartered by Native American tribes and created at the end of the 1960s in the United States. Their emergence stems from the under representation of Native American population in the academe, a consequence of centuries of Federal Indian policies. Nowadays, there are 37 Tribal Colleges located on Indian reservations - poor and geographically remote areas - which serve around 28,000 students through a "tribal curriculum". Though these institutions increased retention rates among this population, their academic performance is still at the core of debates. Divergences of opinions stem from the different ways of assessing the results of these institutions and the way of considering success and failure. The aim of this research paper is to evaluate to what extent Tribal Colleges have contributed to foster Native American empowerment through higher education from the late 1960s to the 21th century.
