Clearinghouse on Native
Teaching and Learning
We help pre-service and in-service teachers to connect with students in local public schools through professional development and community collaboration using the WA state Tribal Sovereignty Curriculum.
Since Time Immemorial
All 29 Washington Native tribes have endorsed this state-mandated curriculum (SB 5433) which supports the teaching of tribal sovereignty, history, and current issues. Each unit is aligned with national and state standards and builds toward the successful completion of a Content-Based Assessment.
Meet our staff
We bring Indigenous perspective to Washington public schools. Both members of our staff are from federally-recognized tribal nations and areas of interest include: Indigenous teacher education, policy, advocacy, special education, and culturally-responsive curriculum and training. This includes working in both reservation and urban communities.
