Race & Education | Indigenous Education: Past, Present and Future
Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM
The Hunt Institute presents "Race & Education | Indigenous Education: Past, Present and Future"
While education can be a vehicle for uplift, opportunity, and social mobility, it can also be leveraged as a mechanism for exclusion and as a tool of forced assimilation. The destructive legacy of figures like Richard Pratt and boarding schools for indigenous children still loom large, with the implications for indigenous children and families still being felt today. In this webinar hear from resource experts on the intersections of American indigenous education and hopes for liberation.
