Thu Nov 16 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm

Join the NCSS Indigenous Education Community for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with social studies educators on Alcatraz Island. Explore the full history of the island, with a focus on the Indians of All Tribes occupation of the island, 1969-1971. National Park Rangers will lead a tour of the island and community leaders will discuss how to use the island's rich history to explore indigenous issues today. Curricular resources will be provided to help transfer your onsite learning to the classroom. An AIM speaker will discuss the importance of Alcatraz and current indigenous civic action in the United States.

Participants should wear comfortable shoes and bring a jacket.  There are no concessions on the island (and limited options on the boat), so plan ahead and eat prior to the start or bring lunch with you.

Fee: SOLD OUT  NOTE:  Attendees will travel together by the F streetcar from 5th & Market Sts. (five blocks from Moscone West) to Pier 33.  Streetcar fare is not included in clinic price.
