Are you eager to learn how to support and participate in initiatives that promote cultural resilience and strengthen indigenous identities? Cultural revitalization initiatives within Minnesota Tribal Nations encompass a wide range of activities, including language revitalization, traditional arts and crafts revival, cultural education programs, and intergenerational knowledge transmission. Join Naomi Louise for this hands-on, interactive workshop and examine efforts towards cultural revitalization within Minnesota Tribal Nations and strategies for community engagement and collaboration. Get ready to embark on a journey to discover the transformative initiatives and partnerships driving cultural renewal and empowerment in indigenous communities! Naomi’s expertise in diversity, equity and inclusion will provide you with resources you need to explore how educational podcasting can preserve one's oral language and revitalization efforts, discuss the importance of cultural sensitivity in educational settings, brainstorm potential partnership projects between schools and Tribal Nations, and develop a community-based STEM program that incorporates traditional knowledge and practices. 

This is workshop three of six for the series titled “Honoring Our Roots: Exploring the Cultural Heritage and Contributions of Minnesota Tribal Nations.” 

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Gain insights into the cultural revitalization efforts underway within Minnesota Tribal Nations, including their goals, challenges, and impact on community well-being and resilience. 
  2. Learn about effective strategies for community engagement and collaboration in cultural revitalization initiatives, drawing upon successful case studies and best practices from indigenous communities. 
  3. Explore resources and tools for supporting cultural revitalization efforts within your own community or educational context, including ways to integrate indigenous perspectives into your teaching practice and curriculum. 
  4. Reflect on your role as an educator and ally in supporting cultural revitalization and community empowerment and identify concrete actions you can take to contribute to positive change. 

Workshop Details: 

While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.
