Welcoming Dialogue on American Indian/Alaska Native Bias- Innovation Quarter
Ever wondered where to start with social justice issues? Have you wanted to become involved, but worry about using the wrong language? Join a group of like-minded voyagers as you engage in the Starbucks To Be Welcoming learning series.
Building on the race course, this To Be Welcoming course focuses on bias and the experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native peoples in the United States. Here, we explore how different biases affect the economic, social, and cultural experiences of Indigenous peoples. We begin with key terms like sovereignty and tribe, followed by a video module featuring faculty experts answering commonly asked questions. Next, we provide context by exploring media representations of American Indians, cultural traditions, and education. We conclude with points for starting your own discussions on American Indian/Alaskan Native bias and considering appropriate responses.
