Civic Boot Camp: Weaving Social Responsibility with Native Values
June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree – $75
Seattle CityClub is hosting a three-part series of virtual Civic Boot Camps, Native American Leadership in the Salish Sea Region, to explore the contributions of local Tribal leadership to our community and civic landscape. Through a series of webinars with panels of Native adult and youth leaders, we’ll discuss the role, responsibility, and contributions of Tribal leadership to our community as they work with multiple levels of government and non-tribal organizations to manage our natural resources and address social, environmental, and health issues.
Listen, ask questions, and get the knowledge and inspiration needed to engage in your community and work toward solutions. As part of this curriculum, all participants will also receive links to informational interviews with community leaders, key articles, videos, websites, and volunteer resources.
This third webinar on Friday, June 18 will feature leaders of local organizations and institutions who are incorporating Native American historical and cultural information into their programs and initiatives. Bill Kallappa will discuss the challenges and opportunities of integrating Native American educational initiatives into Washington’s K-12 public school system. Polly Olsen will discuss her work at the Burke Museum to consult with Tribes to maintain state collections of natural history and cultural heritage.
