Did you know that almost 30% of the Native population is under 18 years old? With over 1,000 students in the Sioux Falls School District, Native Americans make up one of the largest minority groups in the community. Cultural identity, while different for everyone, is something we all carry with us. No matter who we are the cultural context in which we were raised plays a role in how we see the world.
LSS recently created a video training, Working With American Indian Children and Families that is available for viewing on our website. Written by Tawa Witko and narrated by Chad Nielsen, the training uses text, photo imagery, interviews and videos to provide context to professionals and volunteers working with American Indian people.
