Indigenous knowledge production happens in various locations and through many methods. Indigenous scholars around the world are prioritizing the teachings of our ancestors and decentering Western frameworks. We are Rachel Cushman, an enrolled citizen of the Chinook Indian Nation, and Dr. Chance White Eyes, an enrolled citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. We both work within the academy, actively disrupting Western frameworks and colonial structures.
Over the next seven weeks until the week of Thanksgiving, Confluence will be sharing resources centered around the 6 Critical Orientations for Indigenous Studies Curriculum. This post summarizes all the resources from our Intro Week.
Confluence in the Classroom put together a four pager on key concepts and understandings to do with CIC Native Educators, Oregon State tribal history requirements, and Washington State tribal history requirements. Read and download it here.
