Description: Senate Bill 13 calls upon the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to develop a statewide curriculum relating to the Native American experience in Oregon, including tribal history, tribal sovereignty, culture, treaty rights, government, socioeconomic experiences, and current events. Early in winter 2020, ODE began the roll out of the curriculum developed in collaboration with the nine federally recognized tribes of Oregon to formal educators. 

It’s important to understand this new curriculum strand and how it offers students a more accurate and critical representation of Oregon and the tribal nations within the state. Join Mercedes Jones (Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde) and Trinity Minahan and April Campbell (Oregon Department of Education) as they provide baseline information about the Essential Understandings of Native Americans in Oregon and Dr. Leilani Sabzalians's 6 P's of Critical Orientations for Indigenous Studies.

Note: As this is a workshop and not a webinar we have limited the number of participants. Please contact Jenna Mendenhall or Charissa Jones with any questions or accommodation requests.

Oregon State University is located in the traditional territory of the Ampinefu, or Mary’s River band of the Kalapuya. After the Kalapuya Treaty (Treaty of Dayton) in 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to what are now the Grand Ronde and Siletz reservations, and are now members of Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.

The Environmental Education Association of Oregon acknowledges that all education happens on stolen land. We pay respect to elders both past and present who have been on the land since time immemorial. A land acknowledgement is only a first step towards allyship.

Learn whose land you are on and be active in learning more about the Tribal Nations across Oregon.
