This institute is part of a four year series in collaboration with the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latinx Studies at Vanderbilt University. This summer’s institute is hosted by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University and will take place on campus in New Orleans, LA.
The year’s institute introduces K-12 educators to evidence-based approaches, techniques and instructional strategies to create supportive, learner-centered environments to enhance the teaching of indigenous peoples. It will focus both on indigenous peoples’ relationship with the environment, and broader environmental issues regarding health, infrastructure, and land and water rights. Summer 2023 will focus on climate change and impacts of deforestation, access to water and its relationship to health. Participants will learn how indigenous communities advocate for the environment through food, literature, primary sources, film and firsthand perspectives. The institute engages participants with indigenous communities from Louisiana to Central America. The four-year series of institutes is sponsored by the Centers for Latin American Studies at Vanderbilt University and Tulane University.
