Red Crow Community College was founded in 1986. It was placed under
the direction of the Blood Tribe Education Committee, and started as an
adult education centre. The curriculum was two high school courses
(UCEPP), one University of Lethbridge course, and a study skills
component. In early 1995 the college became the first Tribal College in
Canada. Its board of governors was officially sanctioned by the Blood
Tribe Chief and Council, transferring governance for its education from
the Kainaiwa Board of Education to the Red Crow Community College board.
