Native American Homeschoolers

If our children do not learn the old ways, it is because we have failed to teach them.

I am sorry to say, but it seems that all Native American homeschool associations and support group sites have closed down. Some programs and curriculum resources remain. If you personally know of any active Native American homeschool groups, please post in the comments section below. Do look for local Native American and People of Color support groups in the regional support groups lists on this site.


Programs

Alaska Native Knowledge Network
It has been established to assist Native people, government agencies, educators and the general public in gaining access to the knowledge base that Alaska Natives have acquired through cumulative experience over millennia.

Cherokee Nation expands concurrent enrollment to cover high school juniors and homeschooled students
Feb 28, 2013. The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council voted Monday to broaden its concurrent enrollment program to include even more students seeking higher education credits in high school. Previously, the concurrent enrollment scholarships were open only to Cherokee citizens in their senior year in high school. Monday night’s amendment to the Concurrent Enrollment Scholarship Act of 2011 now paves the way for high school juniors and homeschooled students to also receive funds.

Indigenous Homeschoolers
A community for Indigenous homeschoolers to share idea’s and find support. This group welcomes all, including settler allies who want to learn how to be more inclusive and decolonize their own homeschooling.

Native Child Curriculum
What sets Native Child curriculum material apart is quality and durability of material, attention to detail and beautiful images that make teaching and learning fun for both students and teachers. And of course, it is all bilingual, Diné and English!



Keepers of the Children: Native American Wisdom and Parenting

by Laura M. Ramirez
“Keepers of the Children” (subtitle: Native American Wisdom and Parenting) uses little known Native American secrets to teach parents how to raise children who know their nature and use their strengths to create lives of meaning and contribution. By raising children to unfold the uniqueness in their hearts, parents touch the depths of their own. By teaching children the secrets of genuine fulfillment, they grow up to lead purposeful lives and cherish their parents for this gift. (“Keepers of the Children” is the first in a trilogy of parenting books.)
