About this class:

Participants will begin a journey of learning Native American cultural competence by connecting with cultural teachings and applying them to their own work or perspectives.  Once participants connect with the culture, they are much more equipped to tackle the content and plans of this robust course, which will ultimately make them much more confident to use what they have learned in a respectful and meaningful way.

Instructor bio:
