ATALM 2015 language programs are offered in partnership with several federal agencies, including the White House Initiative for American Indian and Alaska Native Education, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Native Americans, the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Library of Congress Folklife Center.
