Indigenous Wisdom- A Pueblo-based Curriculum: The curriculum serves as a counter-narrative to the presentation of the history of New Mexico presented in our schools today. At the center of the curriculum are concepts and core values that have operated as vehicles for resistance, emancipation, and transformation for Pueblo people as part of maintaining our cultural integrity and exercise of sovereignty, all in the face of colonizing measures taken by Spain, Mexico, and the United States. The Leadership Institute at the SFIS is the primary source for the timeline work and concept development to this projechttps://www.indianpueblo.org/learn/teachers/

The curriculum packet is intended as a pre-visit companion to the WOW mobile exhibit, which has been developed on essential areas that are important to the three land-based tribal groups: Plants and Foods (corn and yucca; Navajo textiles/dyes); Clothing (Apache, Pueblo, and Navajo); Musical Instruments (drums and rattles); Art (Apache and Pueblo pottery; Navajo textiles); and Hunting Tools (bow & arrow, atlatl, and rabbit sticks). http://miaclab.org//assets/files/FINAL-WOW-PreVisit%20Educator%20Packet%20PDF.pdf
