An Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for SB 2304 has been formed with the intent to continue to work together, provide an avenue of support and input for one another, implement existing tools, and identify gaps in resources for school systems as the law rolls out.

The Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for SB 2304 will meet prior to the Peoples Celebration at 4:00 PM, on Thursday April 29, 2021, in the Bismarck Heritage Center’s James River Café (please use the main Heritage Center entrance).

SB 2304 requires Native American history to be included in the educational curriculum for North Dakota students grades K-12. SB 2304 will be in effect August 1, 2021.

Proponents of the bill will work together to ensure the successful implementation of SB 2304, a law championed by the people, for the good of future generations.

“We believe that education is key and the more we know about others, the less fearful we will be” said District 27 Representative and bill author, Ruth Buffalo.
