In celebration of November’s Native American Heritage Month, the Administration for Children and Families is proud to present a two-part webinar series focused on promoting equity in Tribal early childhood programs and on celebrating the resilience and creativity of Tribal communities as they serve young American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and families. These webinars are part of a larger series of webinars on topics related to the implementation and coordination of early childhood programs in AI/AN communities. The first webinar (November 8th) will consider how to think about equity in the context of Tribal early childhood programs, with a particular focus on tribally driven efforts to better understand the need for services and to design services and systems to respond to those needs. The second webinar (November 16th) will explore the topic of resilience and will celebrate the achievements of Tribal early childhood programs and communities as they implement the culturally grounded programs and systems they design. During both webinars, participants will hear about innovations and promising practices being implemented in Tribal communities. Participants will then be able to learn more about and discuss highlighted strategies with peers and to hear about resources they can use in their own communities and programs.
This webinar series has been developed in collaboration with the Early Childhood National Centers’ Equity, Inclusiveness, Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Practices Workgroup’s Tribal Subcommittee.
