The California Indian History Curriculum Coalition – an informal coalition of educators, tribal scholars and native activists – promotes the creation, adoption and implementation of California Indian-vetted curricula to infuse California Indian voice in what our children learn in school. csus.edu/coe/cic
The creation of culturally and historically inclusive, standards-compliant curriculum that honors the voices and history of California Indians.
The state’s History-Social Science Framework recognizes that the story of California begins in pre-Columbian times. Lessons that silence the voices and history of California Indians, such as the 4th grade mission project, are offensive to many. Many teachers would like to change what they teach their students, but they need an acceptable replacement. Your donation helps support local tribes and cooperating educators as they develop and provide culturally and historically inclusive, standards-compliant curriculum to the state’s teachers. Your gift will help us change the narrative on California Indians.
