20. Boarding Schools: Shi-Shi-Etko Memory Pouch Native American Art Project
Many of us think about school in ways that make us smile! After all, isn’t that why we became teachers? But the reality of school in Native American communities is not always pleasant. This lesson is inspired by the books Shi-Shi-Etko and Shin-Chi's Canoe. These books paint the picture of what children and families experienced until the 1990s. They are beautifully written and explore life through the eyes of a child.
