Little Big Horn College (Crow Agency, MT 59022-0370)
Jon Ille (Project Director: June 2016 to present)

Creating and Perpetuating Crow Oral History in the Classroom and Beyond

A three-year project to collect oral histories of the post-World War II generation of  Crow tribe members, to develop humanities course modules based on the interviews, and to train students in oral history methods.

Little Big Horn College (LBHC) proposes a three year Humanities Initiative to enhance the oral histories held in the LBHC Archives which will strengthen Crow perspectives in humanities courses at the college. The LBHC Archives currently holds a large number of pre and early reservation oral histories. The period after World War II lacks the same breadth. As a result, a great deal of material that could assist in a comprehensive Crow centered humanities curriculum is not readily available. Humanities faculty will conduct oral history interviews, integrate the content into the classroom via course modules, and present the oral histories to the Crow community through the Cultural Enrichment Speaker Series. The oral history audio and video files and transcripts will reside at the LBHC Library/Archives for faculty, students and community members to utilize after the completion of the Humanities Initiative as well as being available on the Internet.

Summer Bridge Program in Literature at Haskell Indian Nations University

A three-year project to plan and run two cycles of a four-week summer bridge program for first-year students at Haskell Indian Nations University, focusing on English and humanities.

Haskell Indian Nations University will offer a 4 week Summer Bridge Program for Freshman students focusing on Humanities and English.

The students will be identified as requiring remedial English coursework to bridge the gap between high school and college and will prepare towards completing their degree. The Summer Bridge Program will identify 60 freshman students and each English faculty will conduct an Inventory Exam that will identify the learning styles of each student and develop the coursework activities according to the student learning styles. The Summer Bridge Program will entail three (3) years with the first year as Planning and Curriculum Development; second year will offer the first Summer Bridge Program, and third year will offer the second Summer Bridge Program.

Ilisagvik College (Barrow, AK 99723-0749)
Erin Hollingsworth (Project Director: June 2014 to present)

Developing an Iñupiaq Language Database at Ilisagvik College

A two-year project at Ilisagvik College to create an online, interactive Inupiaq language database, to produce Inupiaq language materials for an online library, and to train faculty in the use of the database and related software.

The Iupiaq language, classified by UNESCO as severely endangered, is the regional language of Alaska's North Slope. The region, similar in size to Minnesota, is home to only 13,000 Iupiaq people, approximately 2,000 of which are fluent speakers. This project will create a simplified, online Iupiaq language database to provide multiple communities of users, from youth to elders, a platform to create, collaborate, and share dynamic content in Iupiaq. The project will facilitate the Iupiaq Studies Faculty and students in generating content in the form of Iupiaq books, both in digital and print format and applications for digital devices. This effort is grounded in the traditional Iupiaq values of sharing, knowledge of language and cooperation.
