Denny Hurtado, director of the Washington state office of Indian Education, says his state's new curriculum goes beyond Pocahantas and General George A. Custer to share a deeper Native American story with students, and to help restore native pride.
...
Hurtado says the curriculum also helps to combat negative stereotypes and to create coursework that is culturally relevant and appeals to Indian students, including many who lag behind their peers in academic achievement.
...
Hurtado, Washington's Indian Education director, says the committee creating his state's curriculum did whatever it could to make it easy for teachers to use, and flexibility was key - from a 45-minute discussion to a semester-long class.
"We took out all the excuses," he says.
Hurtado wants to encourage teachers to work closely with local tribes and Indian education programs and invite tribal members to speak to their students.
"It's about developing relationships first," Hurtado says.
