Why are Thanksgiving, Pocahontas or sports mascots the only time that non-Native students tend to hear about American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians? American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian culture is widely misrepresented and misappropriated in schools and school curricula. Let’s deconstruct how these detrimental stereotypes originate and how to dismantle them through supporting Native and non-Native educators as they teach about American Indian culture and history in the classroom.

This webinar will help educators learn how to represent Native cultures appropriately and take an asset-based approach to teaching that American Indian culture is current and thriving. The panelists will share instructional resources and experiences to open a dialogue about representation in the classroom and how it benefits all students.


Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.
