Review of Confluence’s Educational Program

A Study on the Convergence of Northwest States Indigenous Curricula and Native Educators as Catalysts for Authentic and Impactful Learning


This study is grounded in a conceptual review of Oregon State and Washington State curricula specific to teaching students tribal sovereignty, tribal history and contemporary tribal perspectives/issues through recommended studies aligned with U.S. History and Contemporary World Issues, and satisfying National Common Core State Standards. Though curricula on tribal perspectives and history typically are aligned with social studies outcomes, additional Science and Language Arts concepts are also referenced in this study as appropriate to the indigenous relationship to the land and the environment.
