and Founding of NIAEF
NIAEF is a 501(c) 3
charitable organization chartered in the State of Florida on May
17th, 1996. It is a foundation created to improve the
educational life of Native American students who will eventually
use their education to solve problems that numerous indigenous
tribes of the United States already face.
The Founder and
President is Wathla Estofis Recvlohe. He was born into the
Yuchi Indian tribe and is also an enrolled member of the Creek
Nation of Oklahoma. Mr. Recvlohe saw an important need for
the NIAEF organization in education.
