“Indian 101” Description:
Americans for Indian Opportunity’s “Indian 101” is part of a cultural awareness training program, lauded for its non-victim and no-blame approach to presenting Native American history and culture, analysis of federal/tribal governmental relations and Indian policy, and background on contemporary Native peoples. Native American values and resilience are emphasized throughout the presentation. We will be invited to move away from a culture of oppression mentality toward a positive, realistic understanding of contemporary Indigenous peoples and modern tribal governments of the U.S.
