Abstract or Summary
  • A natural resource science education program for members of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation was designed and developed in partnership with tribal members. The intent of the project was to create a culturally relevant program supported by culturally reflective educational materials which met local needs. The goal of the project was to provide an on-reservation, partnership-based natural resource education program for the purpose of developing understanding between Indians and non-Indians about natural resource education, science, and management strategies. The program was taught on-reservation. Respect and understanding of some cultural differences between Indians and Euro-Americans occurred, and tribal members gained an understanding of the Euro- American view of the science behind natural resource management. The program was considered a success in both short-, and long-term gains. Short-term gains included a 16.30% increase in short-term knowledge gained in coursework sessions where this was measured. Long-term gains included providing a guideline for the design of the 1991 OSU/Warm Springs Memorandum of Understanding, the on-reservation application of coursework knowledge gained, an increase in tribal member's interest in natural resource science education, and the design of an exportable model for university/reservation natural resource science education programs.
