ABOUT

CURRICULUM

To support the use of Bioneers’ original content in the classroom, we’ve developed discussion guides and curriculum bundles aligned with national standards for grades 9- 12+.

What is the Indigeneity Program?

Indigeneity is a Native-led Program within Bioneers that promotes Indigenous approaches to solve the earth’s most pressing environmental and social issues. We produce the Indigenous Forum, original media, educational curricula and catalytic initiatives to support the leadership and rights of First Peoples, while weaving networks, partnerships and alliances among Native and non-Native allies.

“Indigeneity assumes a spiritual interconnectedness between all creations, their right to exist and the value of their contributions to the larger whole. At the core of Indigenous thinking is that coexistence relies on the ability of all peoples’ and living things’ voices be heard and heard equally.”

– LaDonna Harris, Founder and President of Americans for Indian Opportunity

Our work includes a mix of live events, media production, and curriculum development, original media, educational curricula and catalytic initiatives to support the leadership and rights of First Peoples, while weaving networks, partnerships and alliances. We help produce the annual Bioneers conference, and the Indigenous Forum and TEK workshop within the conference. We adapt conference presentations into radio shows, TV broadcasts, online videos, media collections, articles, blogs and books. We support youth through cultural exchanges and curriculum. We also mobilize catalytic initiatives such as the Rights of Nature in US Indian Country governance projects.
