I get asked a lot if there is ONE book that I recommend to teach Native American History. . . . The short answer is no. . . . The long answer is, there are so many great books out there. But most don't cover huge swaths of time, and a lot don't do it in an engaging narrative style. And most cover something super specific. . . . If you are going to have to hack anything in your history studies, it's Native American History, and particularly pre-contact history. . . . Don't forget, Native American History IS American History. . . Same thing. Not different. . . . I've heard that Dr. Debbie Reese @dreese_nambe is working on a children's adaptation of An Indigenous People's History of The United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. That will surely be the book we've all been waiting for. I'm really looking forward to its publication. . . . In the meantime I am piecing things together from the good resources that I have found. And I'm putting all those resources on the website to make your hacking all the easier. . . . Turtle Island, The Story of North Americas First People, by Eldon Yellowhorn and Kathy Lowinger spans thousands of years worth of history. . . . It focuses on the people of North America before European contact. It does include contact and the aftermath all the way up to the present. However more pages are spent on pre-contact cultures, so the chapters on more modern history feel kind of "big picture." . . . The text is a mix of traditional stories, nonfiction historical writing, anthropological writing, and first person narrative. . . . This is a great starting point for any age group. It shouldn't be the only book you ever read though. You're going to have to fill in gaps. . . . I do love how often that question comes up. It just shows that we want to do better for our students. . . . Happy Hacking! . . . #decolonizeeducation #decolonizenow #ushistory #indigenousknowledge #indigenoushistory #homeschoolhistory #homeschoolhistorylesson #theparallelnarrativeprecontact #teachyourchildrenwell #bookstagram #readaloud

Regrann from @theparallelnarrative - At the time of its creation, Juneteenth was a powerful and celebratory tool and action for Freedmen to publicly proclaim and enforce their new freedom. . . . During the Civil War, white planters forcibly moved tens of thousands of slaves to Texas, keeping them in bondage and away from the U.S. Army. . . . Ending slavery was not simply a matter of issuing pronouncements. It was a matter of forcing rebels to obey the law. That is why Granger had to travel to Galveston to proclaim slavery abolished. . . After The Emancipation Proclamation. . . After the passing of the 13th amendment. . . He did that on June 19th, 1865. The real work of ending slavery was done by the freedpeople and the US Army. There were many battles to determine what freedom actually meant. Hence the eventual passing of the 14th and 15th amendments. . . . Texas freedpeople kept alive the memory of emancipation and Reconstruction in ceremonies that eventually became named Juneteenth. . . . At Houston’s Emancipation Park, freedpeople flew flags, sang patriotic songs, paraded in uniform, and defended the memory of Reconstruction. . . . Sound simple? It's really not. Again, this is way WAY simplified for IG. Read the book from the last post to learn more! . . . Check your local events calendars, find some Juneteenth celebrations ( most will likely be happening tomorrow) and get out there and celebrate. . . . #juneteenth #juneteenthcelebrations #theparallelnarrative19thcentury #theparallelnarrativecivilwar #theparallelnarrativeslavery #decolonizeeducation #decolonizenow #blacklivesmatter #ushistoryforkids #americanhistory - #regrann

Anything by the Mckissacks is, in my opinion, pure gold. This book is no exception. . . . . Days of Jubilee, The End of Slavery in The United States, is an in depth look at the days and weeks leading to freedom. . . . Told largely through primary resources including slave narratives, letters and diaries this book looks at the many different ways and days of Jubilee for slaves all over the US. . . . . This book is not just about Juneteenth, and would make an incredible edition to your Civil War studies. . . . Because of the depth of feeling and detail, I think this book is best for upper middle school and high school. Although you could read parts of the narratives and letters to younger children. . . . .

#rp from @unitedblackbooks - This is why #blackwriters, #blackhistory and #blackliterature are essential to our survival and success! Regrann from @dopeblackness - #whitewashing "Following searing indignation across social media, a Canadian publisher will recall a textbook that rather obliquely claimed #firstnations and #indigenous people happily “agreed to” move for European settlers. The textbook, which was apparently supposed to teach third graders about Canadian history, presented a stunningly whitewashed interpretation of European #colonialism. “When the European settlers arrived, they needed land to live on,” read the textbook. “The First Nations peoples agreed to move to different areas to make room for the new settlements.” Hm. While there is an understandable need to phrase potentially complex historical concepts, this revisionist history is simply inaccurate — and perpetuates a narrative of white charitable conquest. There are certainly other ways to explain how European settlers unjustly stole land from people who were there first at a third grade-level. If a third-grader can understand “moving out,” surely they can also understand “forced from their homes.” Popular Book Company Canada (an unfortunate name for a company that is presently quite unpopular) first said it would revise the “Complete Canadian Curriculum Grade 3” book in later editions. But revision was not enough, because, duh! Now the Ontario-based company will recall the book, per a statement released on Facebook."(via splinternews.com) #colonizer #revisionisthistory #trailoftears #genocide #dopeblackness @DopeBlackness - #decolonizeeducation #teachthetruth

Shout out to @chelsey.luger for the piece in @yesmagazine_ 's Decolonize Issue. IT IS TIME to recognize we are hypocrites relishing the privilege of a colonizer's history.

academic life this week was good for my soul. I often get tired of pushing against blocks in academia that shouldn’t even be there, and this week reminded me why it’s so important. gotta keep my goals in mind and learn some balance tho. in between poetry, photography, post-sec, and parenting, things are chaotic. 🍓 summer 2018 goals: balance and slowing down. // location: First Nations University, Regina, SK // • • • #sweetmoonphotography #iphone8plus #iphonepic #tipis #fnuc #ilsa2018 #academicconference #indigenousliterature #phdlife #academia #fuggivorytower #givemeivorytipi #decolonizeeducation #indigenousscholar

It's always about soulwork AND strategy; minsdet and move-making. Oftentimes, we make moves without working on mindset, so when the inevitable hurdles show up, we back down. This is optional; we can #deschool from this pattern.

So I’ll be the indigenous farmer economist radical radical speaker on a panel next week during CrisprCon— a convention focused on the Gene editing technology CRISPR... hosted by Broad/McGovern Institue at MIT and the Dept of Genetics at Harvard Medical... My first time speaking to an Ivy League audience.. aside from student groups.. and the UofM.I am excited to go to Boston for a few days... who has connects in Boston? Where should I eat? Who should I meet? Maybe looking for housing Tuesday night next week... But most importantly... what do you think about Crispr?! I wanna hear your voice and perspective on this issue that is an incredibly crazy technology that humans are toying with these days... is there a way to use this technology for good? Is there a way to democratize science and the academy? How can it be used for good?? looking for a wide range of opinions as I prepare my thoughts for the panel. #swgrows #raizup #outsidesw #decolonizeeducation

We waren uitgenodigd om te praten over het verzorgen van twee gastcolleges aan docent-studenten Geschiedenis over ons lesprogramma Ancestors Unknown en wat er ons inziens nodig is om de leerdoelen te bereiken die het les programma in zich dragen. Heel inspirerend om de kans te krijgen om reeds aan de basis een bewustzijn te creëren rondom inclusief onderwijs. #inclusiveeducation #decolonizeeducation #gedeeldegeschiedenis #verborgenverleden

Ep. 81 is live. Link in bio 🔊🔊 Ujima and Unschooling in New Jersey 🌠 When it comes to nurturing environments where our children are safe expressing themselves and figuring out places and their place–that has particular challenges when you consider the intersection of the oppression and challenges that come with opting out of schooling, and then doing that in brown skin where your existence is criminalized, and there are pipelines designed to funnel your child into today’s version of slavery–the prison system. Some of us decide to operate outside the confines of schooling, and this group of women are supporting their community through collaborative efforts. This year, they organized what turned out to be a well-received one-day conference they called Homeschoolers of Color Collective. Here’s their vibe: “HOC Collective is a group of families seeking to embody the principles of Ujima (collective work and responsibility) by decolonizing ourselves, relationships and education. We emphasize community building, self-directed learning through accessible resources. Disrupting. Empowering. Liberating. Re-Imagining.” #bipocinsde #unschoolers #unschooling #decolonizeeducation #raisingfreepeople #ujima #selfdirectededucation #parenting #respectfulparenting #liberationwork

Commemorating the birthday of Malcom X, who was born on May 19th 1925 and got murdered on February 21st 1965. Malcolm X was one of the most militant black political leaders of his time. As the leader of Nation of Islam he advocated for equal rights for black Americans. It's about time we start to acknowledge the intersection of Islam and (black) resistance in various parts of the world!

In ons lesprogramma moedigen we leerlingen van het PO en VO aan om op zoek te gaan naar hun voorouders en familiegeschiedenis, terwijl we hen in contact brengen met koloniale en migratiegeschiedenissen die in gewone geschiedenislessen onderbelicht blijven.
