Thanks to the David Lynch Foundation, Anawakalmekak has been awarded a grant to continue the expansion of the TM Program for all of our 6th through 12th grade students. The grant has covered scholarships for stress reduction instruction as well as professional training in Transcendental Meditation. The support for the TM Program at Anawakalmekak has also supported a cultural guide from our own community to enhance the program and ensure respect for the spiritual and cultural integrity of the school community.
The Seventh Generation Fund for Indian Development, the only foundation in North America run entirely by Indigenous Peoples, recognized Anawakalmekak’s work in education for Indigenous children with the Firekeeper’s Award.
Anawakalmekak stood out among other indigenous leaders and organizations also recognized, as the only educational or child-focused organization advancing access to the regeneration of a self-affirming design of schooling in the modern international context.

Anawakalmekak was awarded recognition as an Asia Society Confucius Classroom school by the government of China. The award was granted along with several thousands of dollars worth of technology to promote student and teacher communication and exchanges between our schools and sister school programs in Wudang - Lau Ying (Old Eagle) China. As a part of this exchange, Wudang Daoist Gong Fu Master Bing leads regular seminars on traditional Daoist martial arts, philosophy and culture with students and teachers at Anawakalmekak.
