Indigenous Tribal Social Work Educators Association Meeting in Atlanta

Dr. Riley attended the national CSWE Conference in October for the sole purpose of meeting with Indigenous and tribal scholars from around the country. A small room with extensive discussions surrounding social work education, projects, and ideas that support a longtime movement of protecting our People. New Mexico needs more social workers and educators to continue the work of Dr. Evelyn Blanchard and others who forged the path forward for tribal social workers in the United States and beyond—interested in ITSWEA? Please visit the link below and see how you can join this dynamic group of people invested in Indigenous tribal social work education.



Dr. Riley is an enrolled member of the Mescalero Apache Tribe of New Mexico. She has worked in the field of social work for over 23 years and is currently the Director of the Native American Social Work Studies Institute. Her passion is working with people and teaching and learning new things.
