Culturally Responsive Instruction: Affirming Student Identities Through Indigenous Legacies in Latin America and the Caribbean

January 11–12, 2020
9 AM–5:30 PM
National Museum of the American Indian
New York, NY

There is tremendous ethnic and cultural diversity in Latin America and the Caribbean. Students from new migrant, immigrant, refugee, or asylee communities reflect a broad and complex range of cultural diversity. Thus with varying cultural, linguistic, and national identities, educators continue to encounter new opportunities and challenges to support an ever-evolving student population. This two-day workshop aims to enhance culturally responsive teaching practices through examining three case studies of indigenous movements and experiences in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Participants will be able to:

  1. gain a deeper understanding of contemporary indigenous Taíno and Maya identity, knowledge, and cultural traditions;
  2. explore and apply teaching strategies that help students understand social and cultural factors that shape our identities;
  3. connect and apply concepts of Native knowledge and science to their current teaching;
  4. gain confidence in engaging students from new migrant, immigrant, refugee, or asylee communities from Latin America and the Caribbean.

This program is free. P-Credit participants must register with ASPDP ($45 Fee). Registration for ASPDP is available at
