BILLINGS & CROW RESERVATION
The Indian Education for All Advocacy Institute is designed to provide an advanced IEFA learning opportunity for teachers, administrators, grant directors, librarians, Indian Education instructional coaches, post-secondary educators, and Native language instructors…
who have background knowledge about Indian Education for All AND currently integrate IEFA into instructional practice,
who wish to be a resource for IEFA in their buildings or districts,
who are interested in strengthening Indian Education for All leadership and expertise, and
who wish to facilitate partnerships between cultural groups in Montana.
Previous professional development experience with Indian Education for All and the Essential Understandings Regarding Montana Indians is strongly encouraged. Introductory information regarding IEFA will not be provided. Our focus this year will be on advocacy through facilitation of cultural visits; IEFA advocates can be effective ambassadors, bridging cultural gaps for students and colleagues. We will be visiting the Crow reservation to partake in various cultural events, visit significant sites, and make connections within the Crow community.
