Tuy Pathu Tigua Indian Pre-K

Mission Statement

The Tuy Pathu Tigua Indian Pre-K program is committed to promoting a nurturing and safe environment for all children to grow socially, physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually that reflect the unique Tigua cultural heritage of Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo. The program’s goal is to provide families with the knowledge to be strong and successful for future generations.

The Tuy Pathu Tigua Indian Pre-K program serves children ages 3-5 and is located in Pakitu, the Pumpkin Village (District 2).
