Personal Message

Thousands of California schoolchildren have built models of the Spanish missions. It's long been the capstone History-Social Science project in 4th grade. But for many California Indians, the missions are a reminder of the conflict, conquest, and forced labor their ancestors endured there. So when their children are asked to build a monument to the conquerors who decimated their culture, they are insulted and outraged. Many teachers would like to change what they teach about this important era in California’s history, and in doing so also comply with the new California History-Social Science Framework, but they need your help. Your donation will help us put culturally and historically inclusive, standards-compliant curriculum into the hands of fourth grade teachers. Your gift will help us change the narrative on California Indians.

Donations are applied to...

The creation of culturally and historically inclusive, standards-compliant curriculum that honors the voices and history of California Indians.

Why are donations necessary?

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.
