    Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°) is the National Museum of the American Indian’s national initiative to inspire and support transformative teaching and learning about Native Americans. This free, three–part webinar series is designed for education professionals who are new to incorporating more complete narratives about Native American histories, cultures, and contemporary lives into their teaching. Educators whose primary teaching focus is social studies, English language arts, or library sciences and who work with students in grades 4–12 are encouraged to register. We also invite homeschoolers, parents, and others looking for digital educational resources about Native Americans.

  • Native Alliance Summit, Teach For America

    The second is the  Native Alliance Summit from November 6-8. This year’s virtual Native Alliance Annual Leadership Summit will bring together Teach For America’s American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawai’ian Indigenous internal and external community to build a coalition of relatives, supporters and mentors among Tribal Nations/Villages. Throughout the three day summit, participants will work together to build, strengthen, and share resources that support best practices and legislative advocacy for Native Education. Through collaboration, we will work to strengthen the inherent sovereignty of our Nations through Indigenous thought and philosophy and work to dismantle, decolonize, and Indigenize the education system that has historically harmed Indigenous communities.
