Washington state develops tribal sovereignty curriculum

The Washington state education system is developing class room materials on tribal sovereignty and a curriculum for teachers to use. Check out “Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State.” http://indian-ed.org.

For example, one of the units is entitled “The Point No Point Treaty,” and students read information such as “Indian Treaties As Sovereign Contracts” which is currently located at http://www.flashpointmag.com/indtreat.htm

    Throughout the semester, a few teachers here have infused lessons about Washington tribal history and culture into state history classes, part of an effort to encourage all schools to do the same.
