Grant Enables Teachers to Study Native American Literature

Sixteen teachers will study American Indian literature at Western Washington University this summer, thanks to a $122,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

During the five-week Summer Seminar for School Teachers, teachers will study four contemporary Native American novels: The Surrounded by D’Arcy McNickle (Métis), House Made of Dawn by N. Scott Momaday (Kiowa), Winter in the Blood by James Welch (Blackfeet/Gros Ventre), and Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko (Laguna Pueblo).
