Teaching and Learning Indigenous History: Why Wasn't I Taught This?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the Upstander Project.

The purpose of this workshop is to engage with the hidden history of scalp-bounty laws in colonial and post-revolutionary Massachusetts history. Participants will watch a short documentary film, BOUNTY, and learn about the origins of dehumanization of Indigenous peoples, and the impact of historical and intergenerational trauma on Indigenous students and their families. Receive use-tomorrow tools to help teach this disturbing history.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
