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

  • Marriott Detroit Renaissance Center Detroit, MI USA (map)

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."
