    • Chandra Hampson – strategic plan – thanks for recommendations. Perhaps we can ask more native families for input and more feedback. Monday, Jan 28th graham hill elementary, 1 hour meeting. Motion to make document public (website and Facebook and ask for feedback): robin, second: Shana – motion passed
    • Feedback from Kyle for PAC letter to Michael Tolley regarding – be a learner and listen deeply to learn about this subject. People struggle to understand cultural appropriation and the fact that Tribes have the right to tell their own story through curriculum. It is an ongoing discussion. Hard for them to understand, they don’t disagree. Native curriculum will not be written by non-Native people. What happens when this does happen?
    • Norms discussion – What does it mean to show respect at a meeting? What does protocol mean to any of us? Robin is resigning as the elder on the committee (note: This position isn't part of our bylaws) staying on as member-at-large. Can some meetings at the Stanford center?
    • Agenda: How to contribute? Email
    • Request that communications go out prior to meeting
    • Gail Morris updates - skipped
