Evaluation as an Indigenous value, and Indigenous ways of knowing are important and valid. Communities may benefit from an Indigenous evaluation framework, created by the Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI), that is inclusive of American Indians and Alaska Natives living in urban and tribal settings. This training, sponsored by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will highlight aspects of this framework while providing concrete examples of implementation. Workshop leaders will demonstrate how evaluation, if presented in a culturally appropriate way, can empower Native communities to tell their stories and highlight communities’ strength and resilience. This 5.5-hour virtual workshop (two sessions over 2 days with scheduled breaks) includes hands-on interactive learning and engagement activities, sharing of thoughts and ideas, and opportunities for participants to reflect on how our personal identities impact our understandings of evaluation. Registered participants will receive an activity materials kit prior to the workshop. Come ready to learn and to share your knowledge!
