Event Details

Native Americans have profoundly shaped the American story, yet the stories told about Native people are often false and almost always incomplete. From Pocahontas and Jamestown to the first Thanksgiving and Plymouth Colony, Indigenous peoples have rarely been the narrators of their own stories. Join us in a conversation with Native youth to learn how Native people are actively reshaping these narratives today.

Participation is free, but advance registration is required via the Online Event link. Instructions for joining the webinar on Zoom will be emailed to registered participants shortly before the program.

(Re)Telling the American Story is part of Youth in Action: Conversations about Our Future, a series of webinars created for students from middle-school up. Hear from young Native activists and changemakers from across the Western Hemisphere working towards equity and social justice for Indigenous peoples. Topics vary each month. The webinars are recorded and archived at https://americanindian.si.edu/nk360/student-programs/recorded-student-webinars
