Join PAT as we work to ensure that our students recognize that Native American and Indigenous history is American history and should be taught in the classroom year-round.
Please visit our website to find resources co-created by the 2020-2021 PAT Social Justice and Community Outreach and Racial Equity committees. Resources include:
- Grand Ronde Tribal Education resources including Tribal History Curriculum for 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th grade.
- Indigenous Library: Click the link, then click books for read aloud (YouTube) links
- Resources for teaching about Thanksgiving and Columbus Day
- Videos to share with students (links on our website)
We encourage you to add a land acknowledgement to your school routine. Making a land acknowledgement is taking time to recognize the tribes that once lived where our schools now sit. You can use this website to find what ancestral land your school is located on. More Information about land acknowledgements can be found here.
Join Us Monday October 18, 2021, 4:30-5:30 PM: a SJCO subcommittee is meeting to review our current PAT resources for Native American/Indegenous Heritage Month and to make recommendations for this year and the future. Affinity representation is warmly appreciated and all members are welcome. Please sign up here to help on any of our heritage month subcommittees. The link for the October 18 meeting will be sent to everyone indicating interest in helping with Native American/Indegenous Heritage Month.
