Dear Learning Lab Registered User,

Happy Summer! As the school year comes to a close, we're excited to share another live, interactive webinar to support you in using digital museum resources for learning.

Don't miss Cultivating Learning: Investigating Tribal Sovereignty through Objects. In this interactive session with a guest educator from the National Museum of the American Indian, you will learn transferrable, inquiry-based techniques to help students analyze and understand the importance of tribal sovereignty: the authority of Native nations to self-govern. Tribal sovereignty impacts how Native nations operate their own governmental systems, manage tribal lands, build economic strength, and facilitate complex relationships with local, state, and federal governments.

Not able to attend the live session? No problem! The webinar will be archived and made available at the same link. You’ll also find archives of past sessions, and our schedule of upcoming sessions, in our Help Center

We look forward to learning together with you!
