Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
I am a citizen of the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas. I have been teaching about Native peoples, past and present, for many years. My children and I have been hired at museums, schools, historical sites, and libraries over the years to teach students from pre-school to adult ESL, as well as teaching teachers how to accurately teach about us. I love teaching children about Native peoples. Truthful education about us is important and I love to help people of all ages learn accurate information. Indigenous Peoples Day is a holiday my family and I have spent years advocating for in several different cities and we continue to push for a federal holiday. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The focus of this class is on the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day in the United States. Since it exists as a replacement for Columbus Day, we will briefly talk about why many Natives want to get rid of Columbus Day. I will not go into much detail, but discussion of some of the harm he brought will be kept age appropriate. 
In the discussion about issues and triumphs for Natives in the US today, we will be discussing things like poverty, suicide, substance abuse, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, etc. The discussion will focus on moving that narrative to positive aspects of our lives like preserving cultures, languages, traditions, and ways of life and how we are present in U.S. culture and society in many ways.
