Social Justice Keynote: Dr. Anthony Craig

  Anthony B. Craig (Ed.D.) is a citizen of the Yakama Nation, a descendent of the Suquamish Tribe and Puyallup Tribe, and has lived and worked in the Tulalip Tribes’ community for the last 25 years.  Anthony and his wife, Chelsea, have four children and a grandson. Anthony is currently a professor of practice at the University of Washington’s College of Education and is the director of the college’s Leadership for Learning (Ed.D.) Program. Before joining the University of Washington, Anthony spent most of his career serving the Tulalip Tribes’ 

community as a teacher, principal, and district administrator. Anthony has worked to develop partnerships with other educators, community members, and students to imagine and develop public school systems that leverage the immense cultural strengths that exist in tribal communities, and other communities of color, to improve experiences and outcomes for students within and beyond the walls of the community’s schools. Anthony’s leadership aims to build from the work his ancestors and elders have done to protect and perpetuate our collective existence. As his elders have instructed, Anthony works to enact a belief that our work must be done for the love of our people.
