A FIERCE Commitment to Native Education

Between the return of Navajo schools to local control and the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests, issues concerning American Indians are front and center this November, which marks National Native American Heritage Month. Master's student Megan Red Shirt-Shaw, Oglala Lakota and a member of the HGSE student group Future Indigenous Educators Resisting Colonial Education (FIERCE) — which prepares educators to resist the manifestations of colonialism in school systems — has thrown herself into the work of advocacy, helping organize protests and events at HGSE, including a donation drive for the DAPL protestors.
