Educational Programs for Native Youth to be Discussed at USD Luncheon
Roger White Jr., an educator and cultural consultant for the University of Montana, will speak about culturally driven, community-based educational programs for Native American youth during a luncheon Tuesday, April 10 from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. in Delzell Room 202.
Deidre Whiteman, an academic adviser for the School of Education and one of the organizers of the event, said White will focus on the successes of the ENIT Project, a place based, innovative, and academically rigorous way of education designed to prepare young Red Bottom Assiniboine members for the 21st century through cultural stewardship and global citizenship.
“Roger is excited to share his experience with future educators and teaching methods that showcase what it means to be inclusive in the classroom and how all future teachers can apply this practice in their careers,” Whiteman said.
The Lunch & Learn event is sponsored by the School of Education, Native Student Services, and I CARE.
