Addressing the Misconceptions of Native Americans:The Role that History Plays in Our Schools 

June 16, 2017

Holiday Inn Stevens Point – Convention Center

Event Description
Western models of schools have historically been challenging places for Native American students to learn. History matters in teaching and learning! History has a profound effect on us all. What can we do to embolden and empower students to reflect the power that history has on us today? How can students use that history to make a better tomorrow? Join us for an opportunity to extend our understanding of knowing our neighbors while engaging in conversations about the historical impact of schools for Native American students with national speaker, Gyasi Ross.
