Indigenous Online Resources

Indigenous Internet Resources

With the increase in diversity, many scholars and educators see the need of deepening awareness and increasing one’s knowledge of the unique assets, strengths and needs among Indigenous Peoples. The purpose of these resources is represent a holistic approach to education and well-being.

These resources are designed to provide online information focused on Native, Indigenous and Mestizo communities in the following domains:

  • Education
  • Indigenous scholarship/journals
  • Culture and organizations
  • Health
  • Arts
  • Indigenous global and national forums

The initial vision of these resources was to assist teachers in developing culturally congruent and responsive curricula and respective educational materials and lesson plans.  Based on current research, we recognized the need to broaden our vision to promote inclusivity within indigenous communities and across professions.
