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 Program will develop and implement a culturally relevant curriculum and Summer Bridge Student Handbook that will focus on Native American literature, critical thinking, grammar and composition. 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.

Cultural Sovereignty: Two Northern Cheyenne Ledger-Art Notebooks

This project will create an online resource of 1879 ledger notebooks with my researched commentary. Wild Hog and six other Cheyenne men, while in a Dodge City jail, recorded their experiences in unique narrative drawings. These indirectly refer to the tragic 1878 Ft. Robinson Breakout conflict. They also depicted other topics, including environmentally descriptive entries. This project annotates the Northern Cheyenne drawings for future scholars. The final product will be an online posting at the Plains Indian Ledger Art Project site (University of California-San Diego) and a manuscript addition to the Kansas State Historical Society Library and Archives. I have discussed this project with Norman Frank of UC-San Diego, director of the PILA project, and with Nancy Sherbert, Curator Special Collections of the Kansas State Historical Society. The Jan. 1, 2011 to July 31, 2001 project contributes primary historic/literary texts from the point-of-view of Cheyenne people.
