Noobitu ranu ("Let's set up camp together"): Articulating Comanche Philosophy

Faculty development and consultation with scholars and outside institutional partners to study Comanche cultural heritage and enhance American Indian Studies course offerings.

"Noobitu ranu ('Let's Set Up Camp Together'): Articulating Comanche Philosophy" is a project to support faculty development through consultation with scholars and outside institutional partners to study Comanche cultural heritage and enhance American Indian Studies course offerings at Comanche Nation College (CNC). The project begins with a week-long Winter Encampment guided by Gregory Cajete (director of the Native American Studies Program, University of New Mexico), whose book, Look to the Mountain: An Ecology of Indigenous Education, is read and discussed by faculty participants. Thomas Kavanagh (assistant professor of anthropology and museum director, Seton Hall University), who serves as Consulting Anthropologist for the Comanche Nation, contributes to faculty professional development by sharing expertise in areas including Comanche historical accounts and encampment organization. Several other partner organizations, including the Comanche National Museum, Texas Tech University, University of Texas at Arlington, and the Three Rivers Foundation, also contribute knowledge and resources. CNC faculty participants work with colleagues from these partner institutions to produce curricula and classroom materials during the subsequent academic year.
