Free We Shall Remain Webinar
WGBH | December 15, 2009
WGBH-Boston is hosting “Enhancing High School Instruction with We Shall Remain,” a free webinar for high school teachers and librarians, on December 17, 3–4 pm Central. The event will focus on the library event kit developed for the We Shall Remain PBS television series. Presenters include former ALA President Loriene Roy and AASL President Cassandra Barnett. To participate, visit the meeting room; to listen by phone, call toll free (888) 394-8197, participant passcode 757416.
At the heart of We Shall Remain is a five-part television series that shows how Native peoples valiantly resisted expulsion from their lands and fought the extinction of their culture—from the Wampanoags of New England in the 1600s who used their alliance with the English to weaken rival tribes, to the bold new leaders of the 1970s who harnessed the momentum of the civil rights movement to forge a pan-Indian identity. We Shall Remain represents an unprecedented collaboration between Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at all levels of the project.
The We Shall Remain library event kit offers programming ideas and resources to help libraries organize and deliver engaging events related to We Shall Remain. Features include storytelling days, Native literature reading circles, cross-cultural art projects for youth, discussion forums, guidelines for evaluating media about Native peoples, and an extensive bibliography of book, film, and Internet resources.
WGBH is PBS’s single largest producer of content for television (prime-time and children’s programs) and the Web.
