Event Description
Understanding the Wisconsin American Indian educational experience and perspectives has profound implications for both district policies and instructional methodology when transforming systems to educate all students. Through counter-narratives shared by American Indians, learn about the rights, responsibilities, and misinformation surrounding Native people and education.

Apply the Courageous Conversations protocols to examine, 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.”
