Abstract

The panel will discuss the issues, challenges, strategies and benefits of collaborations between Native American schools, tribes and national and regional museums in developing web-based virtual museums as a means of "digital repatriation" of cultural artifacts and resources to support culturally responsive curriculum in schools serving Native children. The Four Directions Model for development of virtual museums involved a unique collaboration between Native students, teachers, elders and museum personnel at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, the Heard Museum and other regional museums. The panelists will discuss their views and experiences related to culturally responsive teaching, cultural revitalization, and cultural collaboration. The panel session will include a presentation of the past and current efforts in virtual museum projects that have been conducted by the National Museum of the American Indian, the University of Texas at Austin.
