I attended this protest rally in front of Ingraham High today at noon. There were about 40 students and community members. Sponsored by the Native/Latino club at Ingraham High, it was organized to call attention to issues around cultural competency, equity and student learning. One student read Ingraham's mission statement which says, in part, "to empower multi-ethnic urban youth.."
They would like an assembly every year for Indigieous People's Day. They would like a Native American focus at Ingraham with teaching by Native American elders. (This is interesting because it echoes what the members of Africatown wanted and the district is working with Africatown on their program.)
