An American Indian in the Classroom: Overcoming Trauma in Education for Native Youth
March 15, 2022

American Indians have a unique relationship with the education system in the U.S. As a result of the boarding school era and the miseducation of the general population, American Indian youth are not dropping out of school- they are being pushed out. This presentation will explore how historical educational oppression is linked to contemporary oppression in the classroom and schools and offer some guidance on how to overcome these barriers to support Native youth and families.
