WHAT: History 315 - Indians of North America and Principia 101 - An Introduction to the Liberal Arts are jointly offering an exploration seminar tilted Exploring Anishinaabe Culture. The purpose of this seminar is to examine our own lives by experiencing the culture of our Ojibwe (or Chippewa) neighbors. During fall break from Oct. 17-22, participants will travel to the White Earth Reservation, to meet with tribal leaders, educators and authors. We will explore how history, environmental perspectives and economic development continue to shape our inter cultural relationships. While the experience is designed to build on assignments and readings from Dr. Lintelman's History 315 course and Dr. Papenfuss' Principia class, it is open to any Principia section using Last Standing Woman as a text.
WHEN: We will depart late
Thursday afternoon, Oct. 17th, and return Tuesday afternoon on Oct. 22nd
