Napcast Ep 16 - Indigenizing Education Part 2
Play • 1 hr 17 min

Am I Black enough? How do I claim my Native heritage? Am I Latinx worthy? These are the questions many bi and multi-cultural children ask themselves. Returning for Part 2 of 2, we continue our conversation with Miriam (she/her), an Afro-Indigenous early learning professional in Seattle, WA. In this episode we take an even deeper look at connection, identities, the language of colonization and what we can do to support the Native community. To hear part 1 of our conversation, go back to Episode 13.
