    Don't Forget to Register for NCSS

    Don't miss the opportunity to gather for NCSS 2022 on Lenape Lands in Philadelphia, you can learn more about the Lenape at the museum visit on Thursday! 

    We've missed seeing you in person and hope that you'll make plans to learn with us and encourage other teachers, researchers, friends and colleagues to join us as well. We encourage community members to arrive Thursday and stay through Saturday so you don't miss out on anything!

    Please contribute resources you have to share for our community table - you can bring them with you and we will distribute them at events and during community table time. If they are digital send Mark an email so they can be reviewed and added to the shared community library.

    Film and Discussion Home From School 3:50-5:45

    Sponsored by the NCSS Indigenous Education Community. Home from School: The Children of Carlisle is a documentary feature that tackles the history of the federal Indian boarding school era in the United States and tribal communities seeking healing and justice from these policies decades later. In 2022-23, Home From School is working with strategic partners to ensure that the film is seen and used by educators and students around the U.S. to promote education, dialogue and understanding about the boarding school era and its lasting legacy on the Native American community today.  Following the film, the audience will hear from and engage with members of the film about the making of the film and its impacts on the Northern Arapaho Tribe.  Hear directly from those involved in bringing the children at Carlisle home from school and their travels between Pennsylvania and the Northern Arapahoe Nation.


    Re-Indigenizing History: Moving Beyond Decolonization in Your District 11:10 AM-12:10

    Marriott Franklin 8 (4th Floor)

    Shana Brown and Gail Morris Seattle Public Schools

    The Indigenous Education Community chose to feature this session this year. This session is a very helpful walk-through of how to do this work, using a model of how it was done in Washington State. We are so excited to hear from Shana and Gail! Don't miss this session. 

    Decolonizing Native American and indigenous histories is only the first step toward sustainable educational justice. When we re-indigenize settler-colonial systems and practices, we learn what Native people have always known.


    Indigenous Education Community Meeting
