Somos Indios, We Are Indian: Bridging Indigenous Identities

An eighteen-month curriculum development project for a new Native American and Indigenous Studies program at a Hispanic-serving institution with a large Native American student population.

Heritage University, a private, four-year Hispanic-Serving Institution located on the Yakama Indian Reservation in rural Eastern Washington, proposes an eighteen-month "Somos Indios, We are Indian: Bridging Indigenous Identities" curriculum development project. Processing themes through dialogues with invited scholars will deepen understandings of the shared socio-political histories of our Hispanic and Native American students, thereby providing a critical interdisciplinary Humanities foundation for contested identity dialogue in four key courses of a Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) Program currently under development. Additionally, ten culturally-embedded course assignments or projects following the theme of "We are Indian" will be created and housed in our online Center for Intercultural Learning and Teaching to enhance faculty teaching across the curriculum.
