      Native Knowledge 360° (NK360°) is the National Museum of the American Indian’s national initiative to inspire and support transformative teaching and learning about Native Americans.

Educators whose primary teaching focus is social studies, English language arts, or library sciences and who work with students in grades 4–12 are encouraged to register. We also invite home schoolers, parents, and others looking for digital educational resources about Native Americans. 
      The series will be especially helpful for educators who are just beginning to advance their practice of bringing Native perspectives to their curricula
