Lakota Language and Culture in an Elementary Classroom

March 11, 2021 • 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Event Category:

The Midwest and Plains Equity Assistance Center (MAP) is hosting a virtual event from 2:30-3:30 p.m. CST on Thursday, March 11, that explores how Lakota language and culture can be integrated into elementary classrooms.

The South Dakota Department of Education adopted the Oceti Sakowin Essential for Understandings (OSEU) in 2018. This adoption by the state department of education demonstrated the importance of South Dakota citizens to understand the history and the cultural makeup of Indigenous people. How do we use these understandings to center Indigenous culture? How do we foster students’ mathematical identity through the OSEU?

In this EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable (featuring Matthew Rama & Tamera Miyasato and facilitated by Dr. Jami Stone), we explore how the OSEU can be integrated into any classroom as a starting point to honor student voices, experiences, and identities by centering Indigenous culture in the learning environment.

Accessibility questions for all events: please contact the Center at 317-278-3493 or email glec@iupui.edu. All accommodation requests must be made within two weeks of event date.
