I believe the Native Studies Workshop for Educators is a program that is having a positive impact on education in Minnesota.
I would encourage social studies people to attend if they can, especially if they are teaching Minnesota history as part of their curriculum.
A very enlightening, provocative and informative workshop...it offers a refreshing perspective on both history and current events.
Eye opening and a great learning experience for me.
Key in raising my understanding of the Dakota and Ojibwe histories and cultures. Meeting members of those nations and hearing their stories directly has given me insight that I could never get from simply reading a book.
