This virtual (via Zoom) workshop focuses on Tribal History/Shared History: Oregon American Indian Curriculum. In 2017, the Oregon Legislature enacted Senate Bill (SB) 13, now known as Tribal History/Shared History. Tribal History / Shared History is (K-12) historically accurate, culturally embedded, place-based, contemporary, and developmentally appropriate Native American/Alaska Native curriculum. Throughout this workshop, participants will learn the 9 Essential Understandings and 6 Critical Orientations needed to understand the rich culture and contributions of Native people in this state and nation. Participants will leave the workshop with ways to implement and integrate these essential understandings and educate students on the accurate and authentic traditional knowledge and place of tribal peoples that call Oregon home.
Facilitated by Louise Wilmes, Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Oklahoma
Guest panel and speakers to be confirmed.
