Fort Peck PlaceNames: Assiniboine & Sioux

Fort Peck PlaceNames Project

In this place-based geo-cultural project, The University of Montana, The Fort Peck Tribal Executive Board, and The Fort Peck Community College completed a bi-cultural curriculum for high school students.

Using Google Earth and Giga Pans, students explore the traditional and current lands and culture of the Assinniboine and Sioux; examine the critical role that land-friendly bison play in tribal life and prairie ecosystems; and consider current conservation efforts to sustain Echinacea plant communities. Finally, students examine their own worldviews and identify action they can take to contribute to an ecologically sustainable future for the people, flora, and fauna of the Fort Peck Reservation
