I have been receiving and reading many of the wonderful topics and
appreciate the input from the readers of this mail list. PLease tell
me if anyone has suggestions and experience in fornig and " interactive,
multi-disciplinary" Arts/Culture Program with Native Americans?
I am working with the Fort Mojave INdian Tribe, a small Native American
Tribe of 1,200 members and would like to assist in forming an
arts/culture program that would link elders and younger tribal members
(age 4-18) in program(s) to allow elders to teach students and have
students provide input-feedback and also to have some freedoms to
demonstrate and experience their own talents and creations in various
forms of art that are relative to their culture, language and history.
1. Are there any existing teachers or programs who can provide
2. Are there any funds or grants that support such programs?
3. Are there any work related programs that might assist older tribal
members (21 and up) to be involved as teachers/assistants etc. and
receive stipends or wages for their volunteer work.
4. Can you refer me to any of the above to help our tribe in this
The Tribe embraces the three States of California, Arizona and Nevada
with its population and members.
