Program Description:


In this course, the student will develop curriculum from first-hand experiences gained on the Acoma Reservation and visits to various anthropologically significant sites such as Canyon de Chelly, Frijoles Canyon, and others. Emphasis will be placed on historical and contemporary cultural views of Native Americana in the Southwest. The curriculum will address, from primary sources, the studio processes that reflect Native American aesthetical, critical, historical, and cultural components. On-and-off Reservation experiences in both visual and textual research will be the essential component of this course.  This experience is designed to provide a foundation of first-hand knowledge and pragmatic skills to enhance pedagogy. This course will emphasize visual research as a reciprocal aspect of studio production. Students will investigate the social, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, and evaluative topics germane to teaching Southwest Native American cultural contextualization. This course will include an introduction to cultural issues, diversity, and related perspectives in education. Examination of individual differences in ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, gender, exceptionalities, language, religion, sexual orientation, and geographic area in the context of education and society.
