This first event in NASW-Michigan’s museum learning series will explore the history of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. Following a guided tour of the museum, Shannon Martin, Director of Ziibiwing Center, will present a workshop on tribal history, boarding school era, and cultural diversity.

 

The permanent, educational, sacred, and ceremonial collections of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, managed by the Ziibiwing Center are a bridge through time where the past meets the present. Centuries old artifacts come to life and educate the tribal community and others about the social and artistic expression of our ancestors. Contemporary objects revitalize the traditions and teachings of our elders.

 

Learning Objectives:

1. Explore the history of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan

2. Understand boarding schools and their impact on current generations

3. Explore culture diversity issues as they relate to tribal communities and how social workers can practice with cultural humility

 

2 CEs will be available for licensed social workers. $15 for students, $20 for NASW members, $30 for non-members.Registration cost includes admission into the museum.

 

Space is extremely limited.

The Holocaust is a history not only of evil, although the evil is undeniable, but also of great courage, strength and righteousness. Join NASW for a museum tour and survivor testimony at The Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills for Part 2 of our museum series. The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus has been teaching about the Holocaust and its legacy for more than 25 years, and its building, exhibits and programs have been receiving international accolades and heartfelt thanks from our millions of visitors.

 

It is the mission of the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus to remember those who perished and survived the Holocaust and, in a world increasingly faced with sectarian strife and intolerance, to set forth the lessons of the Holocaust as a model for teaching ethical conduct and responsible decision-making.  By highlighting those individuals who, in the midst of evil, stood for the best rather than the worst of human nature, the Holocaust Memorial Center seeks to contribute to maintaining an open, free society. For more information about the museum, visit www.holocaustcenter.org.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what the Holocaust was and it's implications for understanding human nature.
  • To learn about the plight of victims to better understand the emotional impact on their psyches and lives.
  • To understand what can be learned about preventing genocide and mass atrocities through study of the Holocaust and other Nazi crimes.

2.5 CEs will be available for licensed social workers. $15 for students, $20 for NASW members, $30 for non-members. Registration cost includes admission into the museum.

 

Space is extremely limited.
