Quotes from Teaching Truly: A Curriculum to Indigenize Mainstream Education by Four Arrows (Don Trent Jacobs)

“While there is no single Correct way for educators to address the complexities of historical trauma and unresolved grief among Native students and their communities, this chapter offers the following for consideration:

6. Recognize and acknowledge current experiences of discrimination and social injustice of Native people and the failure of most institutions to acknowledge responsibility in past wrongs. In 2004 a joint resolution before the 108th Congress called for the US government to “acknowledge a long history of depredations and ill-conceived policies bu the United States Government on behalf of the United States” (United States, 2004). Thus far, no apology has been offered.” ~ Teaching Truly Pg 47
