Native American Educational Resource Guide
In an effort to better support our Native youth in their schools and classrooms, the AIHFS Dream Seekers Youth Program has created a Native American Educational Resource Guide for teachers. The guide provides background information about Native American culture and history as well as “do’s and don’ts” for educators who are teaching Native American students or teaching about Native Americans. It is our hope that this guide will increase understanding and respect for our Native American youth and cultures in educational environments. Printed copies are available for free at AIHFS. Here is the pdf: Native American Educational Resource Guide
