Upcoming/Recent Activities

I recently attended the Enduring Legacies Native Cases Insitute on August 24-26, 2014 hosted by Barbara Smith from The Evergree State College. Over three days we explored teaching and creating Native Cases for the classroom - I especially liked the case titled The Twilight Saga and the Quileute Indian Tribe: Opportunity or Cultural Exploitation?. Evergreen has a wonderful repository of Native Case Studies that can be searched to find relevant cases.

Diversity and Inclusion Projects

The T-E-N Project. T-E-N is a developing partnership between the University of Washington Bothell and Indian peoples within the Northwest to provide culturally-relevant, innovative curricula for tribal members preparing for, and beginning, their college-level studies. The T-E-N project will 1) enhance the research of the fellows who will explore pedagogical and educational best practices; 2) benefit tribes through tribal youth development; and 3) contribute to UW student learning through meaningful projects involving case designs, technology/media development, and opportunities to work with tribal mentors and educators.
