Seattle has one like that: Indian Heritage Highschool. So I'm assuming that this is what that charter school discussed in the article is.

here's a quick overview of the Johnson-O'Malley Act, which created a funding base for Native kids' public school education:
Johnson-O?Malley Act of 1934 - American Education

... No, I'm talking about American Indian middle and high school on 35th Avenue in East Oakland. I have no clue what you're talking about.
