TRIBAL POSTERS

The Tribal Posters were created by the Minnesota Child Care Resource & Referral in collaboration with MnTRECC  and tribal partners statewide.  The posters capture images of children from the reservations in Minnesota and from the Twin Cities Metro area.  Posters were distributed across the reservations in Minnesota and in the Twin Cities to promote quality child care services.  In a continued effort to revitalize the language the posters reflect the Ojibwe and the Dakota languages. Click on each heading to see the poster.

POSITIVE INDIAN PARENTING

Positive Indian Parenting: Honoring our Children by Honoring our Traditions

Positive Indian Parenting draws on the cultural strengths of Native American child rearing. The material in this curriculum has been developed through extensive consultation with tribal elders, Native American social welfare professionals and parents. The result is a curriculum that provides Native American parent trainers with information on how to conduct and organize parent training, background reading on traditional and modern parenting, lesson plans, handouts, and exercises. Focused on the positive values of the traditional ways as a model, the curriculum seeks to help parents decide for themselves what kind of parenting they want to use. 

The curriculum is divided into eight sessions requiring two to three hours each. The material suggests a philosophy for parent trainers and promotes respect, family unity, and pride in our traditional ways. 

Session I: Traditional Parenting
Session II: Lessons of the Storyteller
Session III: Lessons of the Cradleboard
Session IV: Harmony in Child Rearing
Session V: Traditional Behavior Management
Session VI: Lessons of Mother Nature
Session VII: Praise in Traditional Parenting
Session VIII: Choices in Parenting

For more information on Positive Indian Parenting contact Patti Turney at 1-800-551-0969 or email Patti at Patti.Turney@llojibwe.org.

A TRIBAL GUIDE TO GOOD START, GROW SMART
BACKGROUND

In 2001 Congress passed the No Child Left Behind Act, the Bush Administrationís Education Reform Bill. This Act drew attention to the need for young children to be given the opportunity to learn fundamental skills that will prepare them for success in school.

The Good Start, Grow Smart (GSGS) Initiative was introduced by the Bush Administration in April 2002 as the next step in education reform. The goal of the Initiative is to ensure that young children are equipped with the skills they will need to start school ready to learn. The Initiative focuses on strengthening Head Start; partnering with States to improve early learning; and providing parents, teachers, and caregivers with information on early learning.

The Child Care Bureau (CCB) has been focusing on three key areas within the Good Start, Grow Smart Initiative:

  • Early Learning Guidelines (ELGs)
  • Professional Development Plans 
  • Program Coordination
