American Indian Education Program
Monthly Newsletter - October 30th
Boozhoo District 196 Teachers!
With the advice from District 196's Native American Parent Advisory Committee, the American Indian Education Program will create monthly newsletters on a variety of topics. The goal of this newsletter is to promote indigenous knowledge and worldview with hopes to have a greater impact on student learning and achievement across the district.
Our program staff is excited to continue our collaborative work with District 196 teachers and curriculum leaders. Please feel free to explore the many resources we will share each month and we welcome any follow up or questions that you have.

American Indian? Native American? Indigenous?
Many people would like to be addressed by their individual nation such as an Ojibwe or a Dakota.
Another thing to keep in mind is asking the person or student what they would prefer. Asking them in a respectful manner is always a good choice! Things to avoid are terms that are culturally inappropriate like ”chief.”
