Learn & Serve Focus Groups

 

Village Elders and other Native adults were asked to share their knowledge and became vital participants in the development of this curriculum, providing input on topics selection, protocol, background information and cultural relevancy.

The Learn and Serve Program is grateful to them for the time they spent and for their input on this curriculum. This advisory committee was made up of representatives selected by the Village Councils from Mentasta and Chistochina, to form these Learn & Serve Program Focus Groups.

Thank you to the Chistochina and Mentasta artists whose baskets, moccasins, baby carriers, drums and traditional clothing and artifacts have been included in this curriculum.
