Native American PowWow: Dances and Stories Related to Nature
We are working on the production of several instructional videos that draw students’
attention to the close connections of Native American culture and nature. Among the topics
covered are the Grass Dance, White Clay Story and PowWow Celebration.
Russian/American Ecological Study Tours
We are currently planning field study expeditions in 2005. First will be a cultural and
ecological tour of the Moscow Region, St. Petersburg and the Middle Ural Mountains in the
Russian Federation. The second will be a study tour of Yellowstone National Park. These
expeditions will comprise 6–12 people and university credit will be available.
