Register for "Civil Rights of Native Americans"

September 19, 2023, 8:30 AM EDT - 2:15 PM EDT | Hosted by: Carl Hayden High School | Phoenix, AZ | Discussion Leader: Dr. Jace Weaver

As educators and citizens, we have all studied the African American movement for Civil Rights. Though have these same rights have not always been extended to include Native Americans. This seminar will focus on the ideas, events, and people related to Indigenous assimilation and civil rights over the course of American History.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with Jace Weaver facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
