Indigenous Summit

Honoring Our Story:

Reclaiming Our Past Through Empowerment and Action

Friday, November 10, 2023

8:30 am - 3:30 pm (MST)


​Tribal communities face the tremendous challenge of preserving their community language while supporting their young learners to be successful academically. Some tribal communities do not view their community language as something to be used for the learning of academic content, and this presents a unique challenge for schools and language teachers to teach the Indigenous language equitably within the school setting. This summit will showcase Indigenous language leaders and the work they are doing in support of language preservation and revitalization.
