About this Event
Speaker: Dr. Leilani Sabzalian
It is vital that educators think critically and carefully about how they support Indigenous students and represent Indigenous peoples and issues in K-12 curriculum.
This presentation introduces educators to White Earth scholar Gerald Vizenor’s concept of survivance as a way of supporting these aims. By highlighting examples of how Indigenous youth and communities enact survivance in schools and society, this talk invites educators to reflect on how they can recognize survivance and center survivance stories in their own teaching.
