Native American Education Program, 1982-83. OEE Evaluation Report.
Inman, Deborah
During 1982-83, the Native American Education Program provided after-school and summer session instruction and supportive services to approximately 450 Native American grade K-12 students scattered throughout New York City. Goals of visiting and interviewing 50% of the target population were realized, with 220 home visits made. Materials and curriculum development continued, with progress made on Shinnecock curriculum. Instruction in Native history and culture was given during a 10-session mini-course in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens and during numerous in-school presentations. Tutoring was provided at the resource center. A workshop and resource center materials offered information on education opportunities. Special activities, with student and parent participation, included trips to the Shinnecock and Ward/Pound Ridge Delaware Reservations, Black Bear Trading Post, Ramapough Indians, and Phildelphia Pow Wow. A first annual Native American Education Day Celebration featured traditional music, crafts, games, storytelling, foods, and speakers. Recommendations included: finding more accessible quarters or concentrating efforts in reaching students in their homes, schools, and communities; prioritizing objectives and determining if staffing permits the carrying out of proposed activities; listing the program telephone number in the New York City directory; and developing a flyer to encourage parents to submit certification statements needed for student participation.
