Targeting Wisconsin’s Most Vulnerable Students: A Seminar About the American Indian Student Experience

  • Holiday Inn and Suites 1000 Imperial Ave Rothschild, WI, 54474 United States (map)

Pacific Educational Group (PEG) presents Beyond Diversity Day 3: American Indian Student Experience.

Understanding the American Indian educational experience and perspectives has profound implications for both policy and pedagogy when transforming systems to educate all students. Through counternarratives shared by American Indians, learn about the rights, responsibilities, and misinformation surrounding Indigenous people and education. Apply the Courageous Conversation protocol to interrogate the presence and role of whiteness; 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." Leave with enhanced knowledge, skills and capacity to engage in Courageous Conversation about indigenous issues in personal, local, and immediate contexts, regardless of the uniqueness of your educational setting or the specificity of your professional role. 

Lead Facilitators:

Ramona Kitto Stately, Indian Education – Success For the Future Program, Osseo Area School District 279, Brooklyn Park, MN, and

Rev Hillstrom, Assistant Administrator, Racial Equity, Office of the Superintendent, Saint Paul Public Schools, Saint Paul, MN.
