Existence is Resistance

Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition is a loosely based coalition of Native American Organizations and individuals, Churches, groups and others, who support Native American and Indigenous treaty and human rights, as well as racial issues on a local and national level.

As a step toward honoring the truth and achieving healing and reconciliation with those indigenous peoples who were affected most by the Doctrine of Discovery and broken treaties, we acknowledge the traditional Shawnee and Myaamia lands on which we now stand, and on which the city of Cincinnati was built.

THE SMITHSONIAN National Museum of the American Indian and GREATER CINCINNATI NATIVE AMERICAN COALITION educator workshop

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition present:

Teaching Native History and Culture in the Classrooms

Educators will be on hand to conduct a session for Ohio teachers on the museum’s education initiative, Native Knowledge 360°, and the American Indian Removal: What Does It Mean to Remove a People? Lesson for Grades 7-12. The online lesson provides perspectives from Native American community members, documents, maps, images, and activities to help students and teachers understand an important and difficult chapter in United States history. This four-hour workshop will give educators an overview of the free online resources available to them that can help elevate the educational experience on these subjects in ways that provide context, are relevant, and build academic skills for their students.

Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°) provides educators and students with new perspectives on Native American history and cultures. Most Americans have only been exposed to part of the story, as told from a single perspective through the lenses of popular media and textbooks. NK360° provides educational materials and teacher training that incorporate Native narratives, more comprehensive histories, and accurate information to enlighten and inform teaching and learning about Native America.

Lunch will be provided. Please register below.
