Welcome to Our Cultural Landscape, Sealaska Heritage’s fourth 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 main conference is scheduled Aug. 5-7; a pre-conference scheduled Aug. 2-4 will provide additional opportunities for educators to explore and participate in extended topics.
SHI is soliciting proposals from early childhood, K-12, university and community educators to speak at hour-long breakout sessions on topics related to culturally responsive education and equity in education and Alaska Native education. Proposals can be submitted through June 7 here. The primary contact person will receive a message indicating receipt of the proposal when it is submitted and will be contacted by June 14, 2021, regarding acceptance and more details.
