Enhancing Tribal Sovereignty through Humanities-Science Connections

A one-year planning grant to integrate Pawnee language, history and culture into the natural science curriculum.

Increasing enrollment at Pawnee Nation College and embedding tribal language and culture into their science courses are the long-term goals of the “Enhancing Tribal Sovereignty through Humanities-Science Connections” project, a collaborative effort of Pawnee Nation College, the Pawnee Nation Community, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), and Oklahoma State University (OSU). During the 1-year planning period, these partners will identify myriad connections between a natural sciences curriculum and the languages, histories, and cultures of the primarily American Indian students served by Pawnee Nation College. The effective goal is to help students understand how connecting humanities to the sciences leads to enhanced tribal sovereignty.
