Building Worldviews: Salish & Pend d'Oreille

Flathead PlaceNames Project 

Envisioned as a bi-cultural curriculum development project using a place-based pedagogical framework, The University of Montana School of Education, Hellgate Elementary, Missoula, Montana, and the Salish ~ Pend d’Oreille Culture Committee committed to a year long curriculum development process with a primary focus on the cultivation of authentic relationships between tribal and non-tribal educational entities.  

The geo-cultural curriculum developed from these efforts is entitled Building Worldviews Using Traditional Cultures and Google Earth. Students explore their “sense of place” and come to know the seasonal round that frame a Salish and Pend d’Oreille worldview.
