(Yakama descendant) is the principal writer for Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State, a groundbreaking state-tribal curriculum partnership overseen by the Sovereignty Curriculum Advisory Committee of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The project is the culmination of her educational vision for Indian and non-Indian communities alike. Growing up on the Yakama reservation, Shana was not even aware that her tribe had a “History,” at least the kind taught in her school. This egregious omission contributed to her shame and led to her lack of cultural identity and sense of belonging. It was not until she went to college and began her career as a social studies and English teacher that she realized she was not alone in her experience and subsequently began her lifelong quest to right the wrongs of ignorance and complacency.
