The packet of visual images, designed by Ojibwe artist Steven Premo, is intended to provide teachers of Indian students with contemporary, positive, non-stereotypical images of native cultures, particularly Indian women, that can be used in all classes for any aged student to assist in increasing the self-esteem of Indian children and help raise the level of understanding among all cultures. The materials include: sticker designs (11 pages of contemporary Indian students, animals, books, and smiling elders, which can be stuck to papers and worksheets or given as prizes); borders (2 types for edging announcements, posters, or worksheets); certificates (2 general designs which can be used for any event to recognize and congratulate outstanding students); duplicating masters (an example sheet is provided which contains drawings of actual female Indian students suitable for worksheets in all subjects or for notes and letters); and a bookmark design.
