The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. and Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°) will host a summer educator institute to promote education about the removal of American Indians. The event is targeted for middle and high school educators in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. The in-depth, week-long teacher training experience will feature a new online interactive lesson, "American Indian Removal: What Does it Mean to Remove a People?" The sessions will focus on the impact of the removal of Native Nations before, during, and after the passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 under Andrew Jackson's presidency. Selected educators will join scholars, education experts, and Native community members for a unique and immersive professional development experience. Participants will take part in scholarly lectures and discussions, tour the museum's collections and work with staff, Native scholars, and education experts throughout the week. Applications are now open to classroom teachers, librarians, curriculum or content coordinators, and school administrators. Applications will be accepted through Friday, April 14. There is no cost to participate in the Institute.
