Join us as we explore the diversity of cultures, histories, and experiences of North America's indigenous peoples, past and present. From the Wampanoags and Abenakis of New England to the Sioux and Navajos in the West to the Aztecs of present-day Mexico, we'll challenge stereotypes about native peoples by looking at the different ways in which indigenous North Americans lived and shaped the history of the continent from the 15th through 20th centuries. We'll discuss war, removal, reservations, and other familiar topics in Native American history, but we'll also highlight native peoples' participation in major events throughout U.S. history, from King Philip's War and the American Revolution to the New Deal and civil rights movements. Finally, we'll survey the contours of Native America today and speak with some of the men and women who are leading their communities into the next century.

Open to all K-12 educators.
