An Indigenous Peoples in the Americas Event 


This event is designed to engage our campus-wide community in a dialogue around concepts of Indigenous education. Together, we will critically reflect about how to conceptualize curriculum, determine appropriate teaching strategies, identify core values that resonate with Indigenous peoples, and develop lesson plans to honor their cultures. Speakers include Mary Kim Titla, an educator, publisher, journalist, and long-time advocate for Native American youth; David Lewis, Cultural Resources Department Manager of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde; and Johnpaul Jones, UO 2011 Pietro Belluschi Distinguished Visiting Professor and prominent Native architect. Facilitated by Dr. CHiXapkaid Pavel, Education Studies, and Dr. Brian Klopotek, Ethnic Studies.
