What are best practices for using both historical and modern maps to teach about Native peoples in your classroom? In this seminar, educators from the Akomawt Educational Initiative and Norman B. Leventhal Map and Education Center will explain their 2019 collaboration to create the exhibition “America Transformed: Mapping the 19th Century,” which resulted in a series of approaches and resources for teaching with maps inclusive of Native perspectives. Engage with educators from both institutions in conversations and lessons that will equip and empower you to teach about Indigenous perspectives, whether you are helping students explore the history of the contemporary Native people in Massachusetts or ongoing multi-national activism for land and water rights from Standing Rock to Nova Scotia.

Open to all K-12 educators.
