Intersecting Cultures: Where Anishinaabe Arts Overlap with Standards-Based Curriculum


Developed a model for embedding American Indian culture and art into K-8 standards-based arts education, language arts, math, and science curricula for students in Cloquet Public Schools and the Fond du Lac Ojibwe School. The project created culturally-relevant art experiences for all students in these northern Minnesota schools while creating a learning environment in which American Indian and non-Indian students gained basic skills.
