This project was conducted to determine the affects of a culturally responsible placed-based experience for Native American elementary students. The students were exposed to two place-based experiences with the central theme of the traditional Crow uses of buffalo. The place-based experiences included a Tribal Elder guest speaker and a field trip to a battlefield museum and buffalo jump. The results indicated that both student and parents gained a greater appreciation for native Crow culture as a result of the place-based experiences.
