Native American Heritage Month - Celebrating Tribal Sovereignty and Identity

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the DCEE would like to provide school and community resources that will provide engagement opportunities at the local, state, and national level. We encourage school communities to use these resources in a manner that is meaningful and relevant to curriculum enhancement and for building culture and climate. Additional resources and information will be provided during the month.
