Tribal History/Shared History – Reflection & Storytelling
January 10, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Laurie Danzuka shares tribal history, impacts on public education, engaging with tribal students/families, and indigenous ways of living. She will also share current issues facing tribes and their members. All these topics center around treaties, ceded lands, tribal lifeways, cultural restoration, and language revitalization.
Laurie has been an education advocate for preschool to post-secondary education for the past 20+ years. She grew up, went to school, raised her family, and presently lives on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. She believes there can be a balance in tribal education and public education rather than choosing one over the other. Laurie is sharing her story through life experiences and from her personal lens and perspective. She shares to create understanding and to address common misconceptions.
