Northern Arizona University’s College of Education will host its Eighth American Indian / Indigenous Teacher Education Conference on June 16-17, 2017, with a reception on the evening of June 15. This conference for preschool, K-12, college, and university educators and concerned community members is designed through panels, workshops, and papers to share ideas for improving the lives and education of Indigenous children. Northern Arizona University’s College of Education has worked with Indian Nations to improve the education of American Indian students for decades. It has hosted a variety of American Indian teacher and administrative preparation programs, including the well received Learn In Beauty program, and published a number of monographs, including Honoring Our Children: Culturally Appropriate Approaches for Teaching Indigenous Students and Honoring Our Elders: Culturally Appropriate Approaches for Teaching Indigenous Students. Drs. Joseph Martin and W. Sakiestewa Gilbert, who have been long involved in working to improve Indian education, are co-chairing the conference.
