Yale Peabody Museum's Indigenous Cultures of the Americas
American Histories: Indigenous Peoples and Europeans in the Americas
The second year of the Yale Peabody Museum’s Indigenous Cultures of the Americas Institute will explore Native American/European contact and the impact, both immediate and long term, to cultural, political and economic institutions of indigenous and European peoples. The Institute will compare and contrast diverse experiences and engagements, including conflict, collaboration, and exchange of goods and ideas. The cultural diversity of indigenous peoples in the Americas before and after the arrival of Europeans will also be examined. The Institute will meet July 8-12 in New Haven and is offered in conjunction with the Yale’s Programs in International Educational Resources (PIER) and Council for Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS). Participating teachers are eligible for a $400 stipend, pending successful completion of the institute requirements. The application process is competitive and we are recruiting nationally, but strongly encourage local teachers to apply.
