Native American Heritage Month, 2021

Salem-Keizer Public Schools

Today marks the first day of Native American Heritage Month. Throughout November, I invite you to look at this not just as a celebration, but a foundation to further understand our true history. Learn about tribal lands, customs, and cultures and current tribal governments. Learn more about Grand Ronde and some of the activities they host.

Community Learning Session #1: Government to Government Relations

Learn about Tribal government history during Salem-Keizer’s first Community Learning Session

 

Salem-Keizer Public Schools is partnering with the community to provide a series of Community Learning Sessions throughout the 2021-22 school year. The topic for the first meeting is Government-to-Government Relations and will be hosted by the Salem-Keizer School Board Chair Osvaldo Avila and SKPS Director of Student Equity, Access, and Advancement Cynthia Richardson. The guest presenter will be Education Manager Angela Fasana from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. The online event is scheduled Monday, Nov. 8 at 6 p.m., and will feature an interactive presentation on the historical relationship between the United States and Tribal Governments.

Presentation description

Relationships matter and in the world of academia, context is everything when working with parents and children.

Participants will leave with a greater understanding of the historical relationship between the United States Government and Tribal Governments.

The intent is to provide participants with a greater understanding of how this government to government relationship impacts their relationships with parents and children in the classroom. This presentation also touches on how this historical relationship has contributed to the intergenerational trauma suffered by many native people.
