      American Indian Teacher Education Conference 
      Northern Arizona University, College of Education 


      Flagstaff, Arizona, U.S.A., July 13-14, 2012

      Northern Arizona University's College of Education is pleased to announce the Third American Indian Teacher Education Conference: Honoring Our Heritage. This conference is for community, preschool, K-12, college, and university indigenous educators and activists through panels, workshops, and papers to share ideas for improving American Indian education with a focus on the type of preparation Indian Nations want for teachers in their schools. Drs. Joseph Martin and Jon Reyhner, who have been long involved in working to improve Indian education, are co-chairing the conference. Northern Arizona University's College of Education has worked with Indian Nations to improve the education of American Indian students for decades. Northern Arizona University has hosted a variety of American Indian teacher and administrative preparation programs, including the well received Learn In Beauty program, and published a number of monographs, including Honoring Our Heritage: Culturally Appropriate Approaches for Teaching Indigenous Students. University of Utah professor and author of Reflections in Place: Connected Lives of Navajo Women Dr. Donna Deyhle and University of Alaska-Fairbanks professor Dr. Ray Barnhardt will be the keynote speakers. We invite you to come participate in this effort to improve the education of our children.

      Goals of the Conference
      • To bring together educators, administrators, board members, tribal officials, and parents to share ideas and experiences on how to better prepare teachers of American Indian students.
      • To examine teacher education programs in order to determine how they can better prepare teachers of American Indian students.
      • To provide a forum for exchange of scholarly research on teaching American Indian students.
      • To disseminate through a monograph and an American Indian Education web site recent research and thinking on American Indian education best practices.
