Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

(a) Increase indigenous arts access with modest (10%) boost in attendance over the course of the weekend; (b) majority of attendees come away with new understanding or positive connection with indigenous drum building and performing. Attendance will be counted through button sales at Welcome Centers; attendees will be asked about their experience at the Gathering, using follow-up response cards for all and short video interviews with a random sample (20-25 people) to get feedback.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our main goal was education and awareness which we accomplished through the events we hosted in this project.
