Claudia Fox Tree, M.Ed.

Professional Educator and Social Justice Activist

Talking to Kids About Stereotypes and Invisibility of Indigenous
“Native Americans”

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Presented virtually via Zoom webinar

Claudia Fox Tree, M.Ed. (Arawak) facilitates courses and workshops on decolonizing teaching practices, including “un-erasing” Native American First Nations People (FNP). She gives voice to Indigenous experiences (past and present) and asks allies and co-conspirators to come on the journey with her. Her presentations feature discussions on identity, culture, contributions, stereotypes, and historical inaccuracies. 

Missing information and misinformation about the First Nations people of the Americas has made stereotypes hyper-visible and truths invisible. The journey of un-erasing Indigenous voices and learning what we were not taught, or mis-taught, starts with accurate information. It continues by having conversations with families, friends, community members, and our own children. Join Claudia as she confronts "invisibility" and implicit bias, while focusing on how to engage children through books, videos, and conversations. A resource list with books and links to videos and articles will be provided.
