Join Indigenous Educator Leah Hopkins (Narragansett) for this virtual workshop for teachers and students embarking on teaching and researching Indigenous histories. Though the workshop is organized by New England History Day coordinators, the tips and guidance provided by Ms. Hopkins will surely be of interest to any teacher or student researching topics and histories with sensitivity and respect. Ms. Hopkins will cover topics such as how to recognize bias in sources, how to find Indigenous voices to include in your research, and where to find Indigenous-produced sources.

Ms. Hopkins works to develop and implement programs, curricula and digital content for Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences about Native history, culture, values, lifeways and practices.

She has worked at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah), and other institutions.
