About This Project

The Enduring Legacies Native Cases Initiative began in 2006 as a partnership between The Evergreen State College, Northwest Indian College, Salish Kootenai College, and Grays Harbor College. Our goal is to develop and widely disseminate culturally relevant curriculum and teaching resources in the form of case studies on key issues in Indian Country. We are grateful for the support of the Lumina Foundation for Education, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the National Science Foundation. The support of our Indian Advisory Board is also deeply appreciated. They helped us identify key issues in Indian Country for our cases.
