Summary

Archaeological excavations at the Absaroka Agency, a Crow Indian Agency located near present-day Absaroka, Montana, provided an opportunity to develop educational materials using authentic archaeological data. Staff from Project Archaeology, a national archaeology education program, designed and developed curriculum materials for upper elementary students using the archaeological evidence from the excavations at the agency site. These materials use archaeology to teach students historical and scientific inquiry with authentic archaeological data. Crow tribal members, educators, and archaeologists collaborated to develop the educational materials with Crow community members providing the enduring understandings, or main concepts, for the materials. As this project is coming to a close, we will present our assessment and overview of this seven year project including our collaborative process, research design, and our consultation with the Crow Tribe.
