Grandfather Remembers Curriculum for K-12, College and Adults
The Omaha Tribal Historical Research Project is creating a new curriculum called "Grandfather Remembers: Broken Treaties,/Stolen Lands: The Omaha Land Theft. " The program is tribally-conceived, designed, formatted and adaptable at public schools on the Omaha's ancestral Reservation lands. It can also be used by individual Omaha enrollees who attend schools in Nebraska, Iowa and elsewhere.
Grandfather Remembers relates Omaha history in the tribal voice. It incorporates the land and the nature of the seen and unseen worlds, and the Omaha’s collective relationship with all that is. It also tells how the dominant culture imposed its will upon the People, causing many troubles the Omaha face today.
its nearly 1,500 pages and more than
3,000 illustrations, Grandfather Remembers
shares the difficulties between Indian
and non-Indian cultures. It also
encourages that collaborative work
accomplished for positive changes.
The Grandfather Remembers Project is also a guide for future scholars and educators. It can be expanded to include additional subject and Omaha-appropriate materials. Hopes are it can serve as a model for other tribal communities and Aboriginal cultures across the nation and around the world.
