Sixth Annual Urban Native Education Conference:

Held on April 21-23, 2022 at the Illinois Holocaust Museum, Skokie, IL
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 6th annual CAICC Urban Native Education Conference, whether you joined virtually, in-person, or both! We enjoyed celebrating our theme with you all with Water Ways of Life: Traditions, Practices, and Knowledge in Action.
This 6th annual conference facilitated the exchange of strategies, tools, and research for Native American education in urban communities. We had a great lineup including Marty Matlock (USDA), Patty Loew, (Northwestern), Christine Livingston (Indiana Dunes), Forrest Bruce (Northwestern), Andrew Johnson (Native American Chamber of Commerce of Illinois), Raquel Garcia-Alvarez and Michelle Uting (Forest Preserves of Cook County), Lynn Long, and Ryann Unabia (ICWA).
If you missed it or would like to watch the sessions again, you can find them below. Also, check out a few photos from the weekend’s events!
We look forward to gathering again next spring 2023!
