P’ôe: Pathways Lecture Series to Host Dr. Debbie Reese
The College of Education and the Northern Pueblos Institute at Northern New Mexico College will be continuing the P’ôe Pathways Lecture Series this spring semester. The next speaker of the series will be Dr. Debbie Reese (Nambe Pueblo). Dr. Reese’s book chapters and articles about the ways Native peoples are depicted in children’s and young adult books are taught in Library Science and Education classes in the United States and Canada. A former schoolteacher and professor, she is invited to give lectures and workshops designed to build awareness of stereotypes in classic and award-winning books and suggest better books by Native writers.
P’ôe: Pathways to American Indian Education Training Program at Northern New Mexico College, a collaborative project involving both the Northern Pueblos Institute and the College of Education, – is a culturally responsive education initiative aimed to establish members of New Mexico’s 22 tribes, pueblos and urban American Indian populations as effective and qualified teachers, counselors, and or administrators in public schools. The Lecture Series is aimed at creating dialogues with education stakeholders that inspire Native Americans to serve as educators in our school systems. The Lecture series is free and open to the public.
