COLONIZATION

Events for October 2016

Ohio Historical Society is seeking a Project Manager for possible World Heritage sites in Ohio.

Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested.

These stereotypes provide the basis for race schemas that influence cognitive processing of social information. So why do some teachers allow their students to uncritically adopt a cartoon version of Indigenous cultures through the use of a mascot portrayed by sports teams?
