The National Museum of the American Indian has launched a national education initiative, Native Knowledge 360 Degrees (NK360°), which provides online materials, professional development and training, as well as advocacy and national partnerships to improve teaching and learning about American Indians. We had the pleasure of creating four of the interactive learning resources that are included in the newest educational resources from NK360°:
