Karla Cavarra Britton (Project Director: July 2019 to present)
Contemporary Navajo Art and Artists: Identity, History, and Culture

The development of a three-year project devoted to the study and documentation of Navajo art and artists.

The School of Arts, Humanities and English at Diné College will strengthen and encourage the college’s mission to cultivate Navajo culture and identity through a three-year study and documentation of contemporary Navajo art and artists, focused on enhancing the academic Art History component of the Humanities curriculum. The project will involve both students and faculty, as well as outside scholars and consultants, in three distinct phases: (1) on-campus seminars with visiting Navajo artists, (2) an exhibition of the artists’ work at the College museum, and (3) development of a scholarly publication documenting the exhibition and offering a critical assessment of the evolution of the Navajo visual arts from a Native perspective. By addressing the lack of significant attention given specifically to contemporary Navajo art and artists, this initiative will result in a much-needed educational resource for wide use in Art History courses at both Diné College and other similar schools.

A Student-Driven Podcast for Increased Ojibwe Language, Culture, and History Engagement

The creation of a student podcast series about Red Lake Ojibwe language, culture and history.

The purpose of this project is to create a student-driven podcast that will use student voices to disseminate information and ideas about the Red Lake Ojibwe language, culture, and history to the Red Lake community, Red Lake tribal members living off the reservation, and the public. The goal is to enhance student-centered learning and student engagement with the humanities at Red Lake Nation College. The content of this podcast, while stemming from class assignments, will be in the voice of our students. The podcast will be a product of their collective and individual knowledge. It is a way for students to actively engage in both their humanities education as well as their Red Lake language, history, and culture. The impact of a student-driven podcast focused on Ojibwe language, culture, and history would be formidable in terms of increased student engagement and motivation as well as oral and written communication skills.

Field Lab in Mvskoke Culture

The revision of a course on Mvskoke culture that will culminate in a travel-study trip to the original homelands of the Muscogee people in the southeastern area of the United States.

The College of the Muscogee Nation proposes a two-year Humanities
initiative to combine classroom lecture with a travel study to the original homelands of the Muscogee (Creek) people. Students enrolled in the MVSK 2343: Field Lab in Mvskoke Culture will have classroom instruction and complete the course with a trip to the traditional and historical sites significant to the Mvskoke. By redesigning the curriculum during the first two trimesters of year one, CMN will strengthen the humanities focus in this course and provide new experiences for students enrolled in the course. As the humanities focus for this course increases, the planning team will expand collections of Mvskoke (Creek) documents, oral histories, literature, and media resources to support the Field Lab in Mvskoke Culture and other courses on the CMN campus.

Enhancing Curriculum with Blackfeet Language and Culture

A two-year project to record Piikani-speaking elders and incorporate interviews into liberal arts courses at Blackfeet Community College.

In an effort to bolster support for the storytelling tradition and language preservation on the Blackfeet nation, Blackfeet Community College (BCC) proposes a three-phase initiative that seeks to 1) document fluent language speakers, 2) translate, archive and organize their messages according to theme, and 3) integrate this work into units of study accessible by all BCC students as a part of their coursework. The first of these objectives will be completed in the first year by directly interviewing key Piikani speakers. Through planning general prompts and questions ahead of time, these interviews will be organized, and the first year will mainly be devoted to collecting and documenting this information. The second year will be focused on translating and organizing interview content into 60 concepts within four thematic units to be studied at BCC as well as integrating the archived, translated interviews into the BCC Liberal Arts curriculum.
