Legacies and Landmarks of the High Plains Native Americans

Two one-week workshops for fifty community college faculty members on landmarks important to High Plains Native American tribes in Nebraska.

Central Community College proposes two, one-week long workshops to immerse community college faculty in a scholarly study of High Plains Native American history and culture from the 18th century to modern times. Special emphasis will be placed on infusion of historical and cultural content of the Pawnee, Ponca, and Winnebago tribes. Attempts at assimilation of Native Americans into the main culture and resulting accommodation will be included, but the theme of hope of a people still among us today who are preserving a cultural identity, and lessons learned by all in the process will be highlighted in the workshops. Participants will use a variety of technological resources to integrate scholarly lectures, landmark visits, literature, film media, artwork, and music into individual curriculum projects. Small groups, round table discussions and question and answer sessions will provide participants with opportunities to interact with lecturers, cultural speakers and workshop faculty.
