The Parents Diversity Council invites the Bedford community to join us for a presentation on Indigenous peoples’ history and narratives, given by Claudia Fox Tree, taking place on Tuesday, November 10, at 6:30 pm via Zoom.
Ms. Fox Tree previously lived in Bedford for many years and raised 5 children in the Bedford school system. She has also spoken on panels with Bedford Embraces Diversity, and in this year of reckoning with racism and symbols of colonialism and hate, we are so excited to have Ms. Fox Tree discuss the impact of erasing Indigenous narratives:
What’s it like to be invisible? Indigenous people have always lived on this land, but their history, culture, and contributions are not seen. Instead, stereotypes and implicit bias, imposed by the dominant culture, define their identity. Join Claudia as she takes back the narrative and focuses on strategies to challenge bias while making contributions visible.
To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentation will also be recorded. If you cannot attend the live presentation but would still like to watch it, please RSVP so that a link to the recording can be sent after the event.
This presentation is part of PDC’s ongoing efforts to connect families across the Bedford school community and deepen knowledge and understanding of race and equity to create a more inclusive tomorrow. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for resources and more info.
