A Landscape Analysis of State Efforts to Provide Education about American Indians and Alaska Natives.
IllumiNative, in partnership with the National Congress of American Indians, the National Indian Education Association (NIEA), the National Education Association (NEA), and WEND Collective released a comprehensive report on Native American K-12 curricula, Becoming Visible: A Landscape Analysis of State Efforts to Provide Education about American Indians and Alaska Natives.
The false narratives, invisibility, and the erasure of Native peoples must end
For decades, the lack of representation and information about Native peoples has perpetuated damaging myths and stereotypes. IllumiNative is an initiative, created and led by Natives, to challenge the negative narrative that surrounds Native communities and ensure accurate and authentic portrayals of Native communities are present in pop culture and media.
Happy Indigenous Peoples Day! Enjoy this Indigenous made message and share with you and yours!
