The American West Center at the University of Utah, under the direction of Matt Basso, has been an enthusiastic, supportive and pivotal player in KUED’s We Shall Remain Project. The Center, which has worked with Indian communities for over four decades and is also currently working on a massive on-line archive of the Native American experience in Utah, is overseeing the development of curriculum for 4th, 7th and 11th grades that will be sent out to all public schools in Utah with DVDs of KUED’s five local productions. Working with tribal education coordinators and the State Office of Education, the curriculum guides will become part of the core requirements for Utah schools, changing the way Native American history and culture is taught. Under the direction of Liz Player, the curriculum project has put together a team of Native American and white undergraduate and graduate students to help research and compile the curriculum guide.
