Native American Pre-K through 12 Curriculum

The Curriculum and How You Can Use it

Lessons of Our Land is designed to make it easy for Pre-K through Grade 12 teachers to incorporate Native American stories, lessons and games into regular classroom instruction. This interdisciplinary Indian land curriculum was designed to align with existing state standards and is adaptable to include the history and culture of a region’s Indian nations. While Lessons of Our Land positions Native American tribal issues and values at the forefront, the curriculum emphasizes the fundamental relationship between land and people in general, not just Native Americans.

“For young people in my community, I want them to know about those stories, so when they go and stand there, they know about their relative, that this is how they used this place...”
