Abstract

In 2015, the Washington State Legislature passed SB5433 requiring the Since Time Immemorial Tribal Sovereignty curriculum be taught in every public K-12 classroom. This new mandate provides both challenges and opportunities for educators. As part of the Brooks Library’s plan to meet this challenge, Ginny Blackson applied for and received the 2016 Smithsonian Libraries’ Neville-Pribram Mid-Career Educators Award. The award provided the opportunity to conduct research at the National Museum of the American Indian and Vine Deloria Jr. Library. This presentation will focus on the results of that research, resources to support the curriculum and the need to infuse indigenous perspectives across the curriculum.
