Rural Alaska Cultural Media Project

The development and testing of a cultural media-making curriculum for rural Alaskan students that incorporates instruction in ethnographic methodologies and the use of the Omeka presentation platform as a means of enhancing Alaskan public history.

Media Action is requesting Digital Humanities Level II Start-Up funding to support the Rural Alaska Cultural Media Project, carried out in partnership with the Iditarod Area School District (IASD). This project involves creating an interactive web portal that facilitates the implementation of Media Action's cultural media-making curriculum into classrooms throughout rural Alaska (through online teacher training) and makes youth-made media available to the public (through an online cultural media repository). The overall goal of this project is to create a free and accessible online tool that innovatively bridges rural classrooms and public audiences in engaging with the humanities through Alaska Native cultural preservation.
