Here is the save the date. The information:
With support of several local Indigenous Educational Organizations, the Michigan Tribal Education Directors (MTED) hope to foster relationships that provide direct contact with decision makers from all areas of education. Our goal is to strengthen the web of opportunity, both educationally and culturally, for all students currently being served in Michigan schools.
We strongly encourage both Native and non-Native stakeholders to Come, Learn, and Participate: Superintendents, Program Directors, Principals, Teachers, Counselors and Social Workers, Tribal Councils, Tribal Education Directors, Native Parents, Native Student Organizations and Tribal Colleges.
We hope to include you as we continue to strengthen partnerships in the new era of Native Education for all. Breakout sessions include implementing the most effective methodologies for teaching Native students including such topics as historical trauma and tribal sovereignty curriculum.
Whether you teach Native students, are a Native educator, or work for a government or non-profit education agency, you’ll leave the Educators Conference having fostered relationships and strengthened the web of opportunity—educational and cultural—for all students.
