North Carolina is home to the largest population of American Indians east of the Mississippi River, totaling more than 184,000 people with eight state-recognized tribes and four urban Indian organizations. On March 24 UNC World View will offer a short virtual program for K-12 and community college educators to introduce and give voice to North Carolina’s state-recognized tribes.
During this program we will learn more about each tribe and members from North Carolina’s indigenous communities are invited to participate on a panel to expand the educator audience knowledge of indigenous peoples, their history, culture and achievements. The program strives to support educators in developing and using culturally appropriate and relevant curriculum and improve educational opportunities for American Indian students.
UNC is committed to a welcoming, accessible experience. We will be using automatic live captions for this event. If you need other accommodations to join and participate in this event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
