To address the challenges and complexities of American Indian realities in today’s society, SEA staff need resources for working collaboratively and respectfully with Native students, families, communities, and nations, especially to facilitate the use of data and evidence that can improve academic and social-emotional outcomes. Each Native community features distinct and complex cultural, economic, educational, historical, linguistic, political, and spiritual foundations that present opportunities for welcoming and including tribally held cultural and educational resources to facilitate the use of data and evidence.
In this free 90-minute webinar, REL West invites SEA staff to explore principles and practices for working respectfully with Indigenous community members to advance educational equity for Native American students.
In this webinar, SEA staff will—
- Explore practices that will better prepare them to work with Indigenous peoples in their states, particularly around planning, collecting, analyzing, and using findings from data collection and research efforts
- Learn strategies for partnering with tribal community leaders using data and research to improve academic and wellness outcomes for Native students
