The American Indian College Fund has awarded four three-year grants of $50,000 each to tribal col- leges and universities (TCUs) in the upper-Midwest through a program designed to increase the intergenera- tional transfer of artistic and cultural knowledge and processes from eld- ers to adults and children and to pro- vide direct Support for Native artists, while stemming the tide of lost and endangered cultural art forms in tribal communities. The program is funded by a grant from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation. Awardees include: Leech Lake Tribal College of Cass Lake, Min- nesota; Turtle Mountain Community College, Belcourt, North Dakota; Sinte Gleska University, Mission, South Dakota; and Oglala Lakota College, Kyle, South Dakota. Turtle Mountain Community Col- lege will strengthen offerings in Tra- ditional Native Arts through four interlocking strategies, including the formalization of a cultural artist committee which will provide the cultural knowledge to broaden the framework of traditional arts; de- velop an archival body of knowl- edge; establish a system to use master artists and apprentices as in- structors; and develop Traditional Native Arts coursework in which the schedule is adapted to the cultural art form. Leech Lake Tribal College will create a Traditional Native Arts cer- tificate program for enrolled stu- dents; develop a master and apprentice program for quillwork for four to five members of the commu- nity; create community classes to teach how to process a whole deer and its' hide; classes on birch bark work including canoe-making; and woodland clay pottery and basket- making with various fibers. Oglala Lakota College will use its grant to provide existing academic courses with more supplies and ma- terials, cultural artifacts, and teach- ing materials; hire additional traditional artists for its summer se- ries; and encourage instructional centers to provide more mini-work- shops on traditional Native cultural art forms. Sinte Gleska University will ex- plore developing certificate pro- grams in specific traditional arts such as the use of bison products for cre- ating ceremonial and daily use items and as a medium for mixing other arts (tanning hides, painting of hides, skulls and other bone segments, beaded and quilled items using pri- mary bison bones and hides); pro- vide workshops in each of the 20 reservation communities and on campus; and develop competencies for certifying master artists through alternative credentialing and degree attainment. The American Indian College Fund (the College Fund) is the na- tion's largest private provider of scholarships for American Indian students. Founded in 1989, the Col- lege Fund has been "Educating the Mind and Spirit" of Native people for 25 years, and provides an aver- age of 6,000 scholarships annually. The College Fund also supports the nation's 34 accredited tribal colleges and universities located on or near Indian reservations.
