Keynote Address: Indigenous Children’s Survivance in Public Schools
Please join the Region 16 Comprehensive Center in welcoming Dr. Leilani Sabzalian, author of “Indigenous Children’s Survivance in Public Schools.”

Dr. Sabzalian (Alutiiq) is an Assistant Professor of Indigenous Studies in Education and Co-Director of the Sapsik’ʷałá Program at the University of Oregon. Her research utilizes Native feminist theories to create more just and humanizing spaces for Indigenous students in public schools. Her research also prepares educators to challenge colonialism in curriculum, policy, and practice, and implement important Indigenous-led initiatives, including Tribal History/Shared History, a law that mandates curriculum on tribal history and sovereignty in all K-12 public schools in Oregon.

In this powerful keynote address, you'll hear Dr. Sabzalian offer an intimate view on how Native students and their communities experience education, through their eyes, and explore examples of survivance - helping you think about how to identify survivance in your own life and work experience.
