Education and Indigenous Peoples: Where is the Contemporary American Indian?

Kansas is home to four federally recognized Native nations as well as Haskell Indian Nations University. Kansas’ historic status as Indian Territory has created a scenario in which our state has an ongoing relationship with Nations from Kansas and American Indian peoples beyond our state boundaries.  Yet, Kansans often find it difficult to understand the complex existence of the modern American Indian due to educational systems that amplify narrow stuck-in-the-past stereotypes. In this session, Dr. Alex Red Corn will walk through some core issues found in our educational systems as it relates to representations of Indigenous peoples. 

This program will also stream live on the Kansas Historical Society YouTube channel.
