The Native Curriculum Partnership (NCP) is a University of New Mexico initiative led by the Center for Regional Studies, the Department of Native American Studies, and the Institute for American Indian Education. The Partnership collaborates with local tribal leaders, Native educators, and community consultants to develop Indigenous film and curriculum materials for K-12 students in New Mexico.

The Native Curriculum Partnership acknowledges the landmark Yazzie/Martinez v. State of New Mexico decision. It actively works towards advancing college and career-ready education opportunities for New Mexico's diverse student population. These efforts primarily benefit low-income students, students of color, English language learners, and students with disabilities.
