About this class:

This course is open to folks who participated in Native American Best Practices 1.  Many people have taken my course through NDSU and you are also welcome to this one as well.  This course will dive deeper into what we were exposed to in the previous course with opportunities to advance and enhance into how folks will use the content in their work or lives.  This will inspire deeper layers of Native competence and understanding to move things to another level of knowing and sharing this content.
