How these resources were gathered
A Decolonizing Curricula Working Group formed out of the Karuna Center’s “Erasure and Restoration” series in the spring of 2021. The group met in March, April, May, and June to envision and discuss how to make strong, truthful, and culturally grounded Native American and Indigenous Studies resources available to the public, and to professionals in all of these fields who are tasked with educating the next generations of Americans.
Dr. Ron Welburn and Dr. Jessica Dolan were both on the advisory committee of the series, and decided to volunteer time and resources to co-chairing a group of people from New England, who are motivated to decolonize curriculum, and build culturally appropriate and solid Native American and Indigenous Studies resources.
