With new timely learning resources including images, videos, reading passages, and more, students can learn about Native American heritage all year long and experience the stories of modern-day activists, innovators, and leaders who instill meaningful changes in their communities and across the country.

As momentum builds to improve how schools teach history (including the more painful parts of it), there’s been a push for more comprehensive, thoughtful, and accurate education around Indigenous American history. In recent years, some states have passed legislation to better ensure that Indigenous American history and culture are reflected in the curriculum.

During the month of November, which is Indigenous Peoples’ Month (also known as Native American Heritage Month), there’s a timely opportunity to deepen learning around the history, contributions, and contemporary issues of Indigenous peoples. Keep reading for lessons and activities to incorporate Indigenous American history and perspectives into your curriculum — throughout both Indigenous Peoples’ Month and the whole year.
