Echoes of the Past, Voices of Today: Intensive Native American Equity Training


  • Hyatt Regency Hotel Austin, TX

Understanding the American Indian educational experience and perspectives has profound implications for both policy and pedagogy when transforming systems to educate all students. Through counter-narratives shared by American Indians, learn about the rights, responsibilities, and misinformation surrounding Indigenous people and education. Apply the Courageous Conversation protocol to interrogate the presence and role of whiteness; recognize and appropriately address the American Indian students’ struggles and emotions connected with educational assimilation; and understand the concepts of “invisible identity” and “walking in two worlds."
