Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The students and teachers will not only gain valuable insight into the history of the Indian Boarding School era and how that culture was suppressed, but also how artistic expression can inspire and inform people to reclaim their lost culture. The value of every presentation will be assessed via feedback from surveys, a short quiz, and recorded observations.
