We will be hosting a day-long event that encourages participants to imagine what it would look like if they had access to indigenous educational materials in their schools and community organizations. The event will showcase indigenous educational materials from the Americas through workshops and panel discussions with indigenous authors, classes on different aspects of indigenous philosophy and culture, and a books, arts and crafts exposition where these materials will be available for purchase.
Our Voices is a campaign from the Ayni Institute that was developed out of the need for a larger presence of Indigenous voices in our educational institutions, cultural organizations, libraries and more.
Our first steps towards making a change is creating an online platform where we highlight content developed by indigenous authors and educators and share it in the form of a monthly newsletter. You can learn more about Our Voices and sign up for the newsletter at www.ourvoicescommunity.org/wisdom
