Teachers spent a week on the Bois Forte reservation learning about Ojibwe and Dakota culture and arts. Through the Culture Based Arts Integration (CBAI) grant teachers are writing curriculum integrating seasonal culture and arts into current and new units of study. Activities during the week included many informative lecture on language, history and culture, demonstration on wild rice harvesting and preparation, demonstration of pow wow organization and participation as well as a number of videos on current and historical topics including the Dakota 38+2, artists and traditional values.

It was a well planned and intensive study time of learning, discussion and reflection.
