Excellent news out of North Dakota! The excitement in the story is palpable. Long overdue, to be sure.
Texas has already passed Native American Studies at the State Board of Education in 2018. At this point, we're waiting for standards to get developed. Soon it will be available in Texas schools like African American Studies and Mexican American Studies.
I really appreciate North Dakota Representative Ruth Buffalo's words on how Native American Studies will help build community and bring healing. Everyone needs to hear this. Native American Studies, like Ethnic Studies, generally, is positive for society.
