Description

Class Experience

I am a Lipan Apache woman and mother who loves teaching about Native peoples. Truthful education about us is important and I love to help people of all ages learn accurate information about us. I have been actively involved in organizing to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day in several states.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be talking about atrocities commited by Columbus and the Spanish in the Americas. I will keep the content and discussion on this age appropriate, but it will include killing, maiming, genocide, and slavery. We will NOT be discussing the sexual abuse that took place. The PowerPoint slideshow includes historical drawings and paintings about the acts Columbus comitted, but they are the more mild ones of this type. This is not a class for sensitive learners.
