Native American Inspirational Leadership Curriculum

Role models are some of the most powerful people in the world, no matter their position in politics or leadership, because they can influence the mind of the next generation. Accomplishments by prominent Native Americans are not often taught, leaving Native students to their own devices to learn about important and inspiring people like them.

Project Collaboration

SilkWeb began collaborating with the National Native American Hall of Fame in the summer of 2021. James Parker Shield and Laurel Silk collaborated on bringing the NNAHOF Inspirational Leadership curriculum into a distance learning format. Part of this endeavor included creating a digital format for the existing teacher training for non-native teachers, designing interactive elements, and ideas for digital delivery of the program to K-12 students. 

Education Philosophy

Our student-centered learning approach includes the following philosophies:

1. Powerful instruction empowers young learners.
2. Curiosity is the spark that should drive instruction.
3. Diversity and cultural inclusion help develop good global citizens.
