“Today was one of the most influential days of professional learning in my career. Gunalchéesh to Sealaska Heritage.” – conference attendee from Juneau
Welcome to Our Cultural Landscape, Sealaska Heritage’s fifth culturally responsive education conference. This event provides educators and administrators with a deep understanding of culturally responsive education and equips them to transform their classrooms, pedagogy, and curriculum to fully support all students’ success—especially those who have been historically underserved, disenfranchised, and marginalized by colonized systems.
Educators, administrators, university faculty, and community members are all welcome and encouraged to attend. Attendees will find engaging and informative sessions to support their thinking around culturally-responsive and sustaining pedagogies for K-12 and university settings, critical theory, place-based education, and possibilities for indigenizing curriculum and building safe social environments for all learners.
The conference is scheduled Aug. 11-13, and will be offered in person in Juneau, Alaska, with featured elements available virtually. The theme of this year’s event is Haa Ḵusteeyí Yatsáakw (“Our Way of Life Persists”).
