How to Honor Indigenous Peoples with Your Kids, Today and Every Day

Repost from April Brown

"As educators and caregivers, it’s imperative that we have honest and brave conversations with the children in our lives. This includes disrupting false narratives when we hear them being perpetuated in our homes and schools. The myth that Columbus was a hero is not only harmful, it’s also unfair to children when grown-ups they trust withhold the truth.
