Seeing Our Native Students: Choosing to Make the Invisible, Visible

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

*Note* This session is appropriate for educators of all levels!
Join Redbud Resource Group as we explore fresh ways to integrate Indigenous and Native culture into the classroom. Participants will leave with a deepened understanding of the ecosocial context in which modern Native peoples live and an awareness of the harmful stereotypes that often pop up in our classrooms. Actionable anti-racist strategies for creating a more equitable and supportive classroom, one that celebrates and uplifts Indigenous knowledge in all subjects, will be provided to all attendees. 
Key Takeaways:
  1. Misrepresentation and erasure of Native and Indigenous peoples in the classroom negatively impacts Native students. Educators can support their Native and Indigenous students by gaining an understanding of the political, historical, cultural, and environmental context of Native America.

  2. Integrating Native knowledge into all school subjects increases the self-worth of Native and Indigenous youth, and may increase allyship between Native and non-Native students. Despite colonialism, Native and Indigenous people continue to protect their cultural and scientific knowledge.
