This accession consists of records that document the work of the Media Initiative Department on the educational website, "American Indian Responses to Environmental Challenges." The website was developed in collaboration with the Akwesasne Mohawk of northern New York, the Campo Kumeyaay Nation of southern California, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe of northern Minnesota and the Lummi Nation of Washington state. Designed for middle and high school students, the website allows users to see how tribes use their traditional culture, values and indigenous knowledge in combination with contemporary science and technologies to inform their environmental work. The project involved interviewing more than 150 people, including cultural leaders and elders, tribal government representatives, natural resources professionals, scientists, as well as college instructors, elementary and high school teachers and students. Materials include digital video, digital audio, images, graphics, maps, music recordings, video production files, and other related records. Materials are in electronic format.
