A History of Navajo Nation Education: Disentangling Our Sovereign Body

This event last occurred April 7, 2022

“A History of Navajo Nation Education: Disentangling Our Sovereign Body” unravels the tangle of federal and state education programs that have been imposed on Navajo people and illuminates the ongoing efforts by tribal communities to transfer state authority over Diné education to the Navajo Nation. In providing the historical roots of today’s Navajo Nation Education challenges, Wendy Shelly Greyeyes clears the path and provides a go-to reference to move discussions forward.

Join the Labriola National American Indian Data Center for an exciting dialogue with author Wendy Shelly Greyeyes (Diné). Wendy is an assistant professor of Native American studies at the University of New Mexico.
