Native Studies Summer Workshop for Educators

NSSWE is designed to increase the knowledge, sensitivity and awareness of Minnesota educators, administrators and employees on the histories, cultures and languages of the federally recognized tribes and bands in Minnesota. This high-quality professional development program will promote a greater understanding of American Indian issues and provide opportunities to critically evaluate educational materials and resources. The goal of NSSWE is to facilitate learning among teachers, administrators, and student service providers in order to increase the effectiveness of working with American Indian students.
