We must support the teachers who will be in charge of expanding Native history lessons



Each year, as the nation marks Native American Heritage Month, educators look for lesson plans and classroom resources to engage their students. Some of these teachers are using state-created resources or following state mandates to teach Native history, such as recently released materials in Oregon and a new Indian Education statute in California.

These states, and many others, are taking steps in the right direction to make sure that students see the history and contemporary experiences of Native people as nuanced, relevant and impactful.

These developments, however, will be meaningless unless we are able to answer the following question: How are we ensuring that our teachers are both well-prepared and well-equipped to begin sharing information and material they likely never received themselves in a formal classroom setting?
