About Workshops

"Teaching Respect for Native Peoples" workshop

In this workshop, Oyate trainers guide participants through the murky world of "children's books about Indians." Using role-plays, improvisations, skits, readings, rewriting, group discussions and group work, Native and non-Native participants together learn how to evaluate children's material for honest portrayals of Indian peoples, and how to select and where to find authentic and respectful materials. Participants examine their own values and come to a greater understanding of how their behaviors influence children whose worldviews may be different from their own.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide workshops at this time.
