Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, our member participants and public participants will gain an understanding and respect for the sustenance, warmth and protection the deer has provided for centuries. The discussions will detail the Anishinaabe seasonal cycle and why the items are produced during its specific cycle. We hope our non-Native participants feel welcome and learn more about us thereby opening a door of communication. We plan to have artist and participant surveys and interviews, after the activity, asking the following questions: How did this activity increase your knowledge of the Anishinaabe seasonal cycle? What specifically did you find the most interesting? Did you feel welcome? Please explain. Was there something that wasn't included that you would like to see in future workshops' If you are not Anishinaabe, do you feel you gained a better understanding and if so how? Are you likely to participate in other art workshops at Northwest Indian Community Development Center? Do you feel your questions were answered? Please explain. Did you increase your skills' How? Do you have anything else you would like to add? Please list below.
