Native American Heritage Month

American Indian Heritage Month

Indigenous Native Culture D51 Student Education Project 

Hi! We are inviting you to participate in our Inaugural Indigenous Native Culture  D51 Student Education Project ! We are collecting digital media from Indigenous  Native leaders to make available for our teachers to share with D51 students during  November, National American Indian Heritage Month. Examples of this media include:  

motivational messages, educational speeches, artistic expressions (poems, stories,  songs, spoken word presentations, visual art with audio interpretation, etc.) This will  take place November 1- 20, 2020 in all District 51 schools including our D51 On-line  Program. We are asking our participants to frame their contributions around these  these two questions:  

1. What is your message to our youth to promote the importance of American Indian cultural influence on our community? 

2. How did your cultural identity influence your decision to do what you do today?
