This is a non Confluence event. It is hosted by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and Teaching for Change.

Educators, join us online when the museum and Teaching for Change present a virtual teach-in about Indigenous peoples’ histories and contemporary experiences with food and water justice.

Internationally renowned writer and environmental justice advocate Winona LaDuke (member of the Mississippi Band Anishinaabeg of the White Earth Reservation) highlights a program of interactive workshops featuring classroom resources available from the museum’s national education initiative, Native Knowledge 360°, and the Zinn Education Project’s Teach Climate Justice campaign.

The teach-in will be held via Zoom, and advance registration is required. The $15 registration fee covers online classroom resources. CEU’s will be available by request, and closed captions will be offered for the keynote and selected sessions.
