Project Abstract:

This project addresses a significant gap in current Open Educational Resources (OER) pertaining to Native American Culture, History, and Government by placing an existing textbook on the Creative Commons, developing open-access, media-rich instructional modules linked to the textbook, and creating a new online course. The project includes placing the textbook History of the Seneca Nation by Dr. Laurence M. Hauptman into the SUNY Creative Commons and building an online course around the open access text. Development of online content will include interviews with Dr. Hauptman and Seneca citizens, archival photographs, lesson plans, and PowerPoint presentations. This is a collaborative project between Jamestown Community College and the Seneca Nations of Indians.
