Abstract

Building and maintaining successful relationships between Indian reservations and University faculty create opportunities to improve educational outcomes for American Indian students and increase the diversity of young people who consider attending college. The University of Minnesota and the White Earth Reservation developed an ongoing, outdoor-based summer school program on the Reservation, which has been successful in a number of ways. Factors to consider in the development and maintenance of such a cross-cultural program are presented.
