The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is well known and respected for making the perspective and history of Native cultures a vital part of its archaeological and educational programing. So we are pleased to announce a new initiative for 2017—the Native American Scholar in Residence Program, which aims to enhance and expand that cultural insight in all of our programs.
The selected scholars will reside on the Crow Canyon campus for up to a week, providing traditional knowledge and perspective to our existing adult and student program participants. The goal is to highlight the personal experiences and cultural perspectives of a Native scholar with the intention of broadening knowledge about the human experience in the past and present for participants and staff.
Scholars will have a chance to participate in field and lab activities as well as classroom teaching, evening program delivery, and brown bag lunch seminars with students and staff. They will also work directly with our program staff to develop additional activities (such as field trips, home/community visits, demonstrations, service learning projects, etc.) to help enhance Crow Canyon's programs.
Crow Canyon offers the scholar residence in a modern home, internet access, utilities, and meals during their stay, as well as a travel stipend and a daily honorarium.
