Robbins, Rebecca L.
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v17 n1 p10-13 Fall 2005
Tribal colleges and universities, in addition to providing our people with higher education, help to bridge the gap among cultures. The colleges sustain American Indian art forms through class and degree offerings that include traditional (shield making, drum making, arrow making, knapping, carving, masks, and pottery), contemporary (digital art, paintings, drawings, sculptures, poetry, and movie making), and performing arts (such as drama, story telling, and poetry slams). This article is a description of one art students experience in a tribal college.
