UNM "Indigenized Campus Tour" Visit
During this community site visit, participants will receive an Indigenized campus tour where we will visit the UNM Indigenous Nations Library Program, American Indian Student Services, Native American Studies Department and the College of Education Institute for American Indian Education. All four are important places on campus that are actively Indigenizing and creating space for Indigenous students and communities. Lastly, IERC participants will visit the Maxwell museum to gain a since of what has historically held space for Indigenous/tribal artifacts and exhibits (both contentious and juxtaposing).
Isleta Head Start
The Isleta Head Start Program includes both Head Start for 3-5 year-olds and Early Head Start for prenatal to 3 year-olds. Located at Isleta Pueblo, the Head Start provides a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate curriculum, qualified teachers, and healthy, culturally relevant, and attractive early childhood learning environment. Early Head Start services encompass a home-based program for pregnant mothers and/or parents of children from birth to 3 years. Services include home visits and bi-weekly socialization activities. Parental involvement and education, as well as community involvement, are cornerstones of this successful early childhood program.
Native American Community Academy
The Native American Community Academy is the first APS collaborative Charter in the state of New Mexico. Our philosophy is grounded in both the traditions of Native American communities and a rigorous, modern approach to college preparatory education. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to the Native American Community Academy.
Mission: To engage students, educators, families, and community in creating a school that will prepare our students to grow from early childhood to adulthood and begin strengthening communities by developing strong leaders who are academically prepared, secure in their identity and healthy.
Vision: Our vision is of a thriving and dynamic community where students, educators, families and Native community leaders come together, creating a place for students to grow, become leaders, and prepare to excel in both college and life in general. The NACA community and experience will help students incorporate wellness and healthy life practices, community service and an appreciation of cultural diversity into their lives.
Indian Pueblo Cultural Center
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is a world-class museum and cultural center created as a place where Pueblo people can tell their story. As the gateway to the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico, the IPCC is a necessary first stop for visitors to New Mexico, providing an introduction for understanding the state's landscape, legacy, and story of continuance. The IPCC hosts traditional Native American dances every weekend year-round and offers an exciting schedule of cultural, educational, and community activities.
Known for its collection of Pueblo pottery and murals painted by Pueblo artists, the IPCC also offers an exciting schedule of cultural, educational, and community activities including rotating exhibits, events with Native American artists and leaders, hands-on children’s programs, and art festivals. Today the IPCC leads the world in educating visitors about the legacy of resilience, accomplishments, and living history of Pueblo people and serves as a vibrant place for people of all cultures to share, learn, and discover.
