Recreation and Health Education Programs for the Santee Indian Reservation.
Peterson, Irvin, L.; And Others
This is a report of a joint Nebraska Wesleyan University-Red Cross project on the Santee Indian Reservation. Through the project, Wesleyan students took a three-credit course in which they learned principles of health education, physical education, recreation, and nutrition, and used their skills on the reservation. The students participated in all aspects of the community project, from designing and building facilities to training local people to assume responsibility for the project. The project had to cope with numerous social, economic, and physical problems in this underprivileged area, but over time most goals were accomplished. The author of the report recommends that college health, physical education, and recreation programs offer such practical training experience for their students. (CD)
