Program Description:
whiteearth1whiteearth2

This is a faculty-led CCE with travel and program logistics coordinated through Xperitas.

The White Earth Reservation is located in Becker, Clearwater, and Mahnomen counties in north-central Minnesota. Created in 1867 by a treaty between the United States and the Mississippi Band of Chippewa Indians, it is one of seven Chippewa reservations in Minnesota. Called "Chippewa" in the United States and "Ojibwe/Ojibway" in Canada, the White Earth tribe prefers to call themselves "Anishinabe" meaning "the people". There are approximately 20,000 tribal members registered with the White Earth reservation. Although the White Earth Anishinabe no longer live as their ancestors did, they have kept alive their tribal heritage. Almost every aspect of their present-day life has been strongly influenced by the past. In partnership with White Earth Land Recovery Project/Native Harvest, GCN works with the local community. Most projects focus on maintaining the Anishinabe culture, language, and way of life. Possible projects include cultural projects with the youth group, refurbishing of community buildings and harvesting crops in the community gardens. 
 
A Day in Community
Team members wake in the morning in their communal cabins and have a breakfast of eggs, cereal or pancakes. After traveling to the community project site, the team begins work on the project site. Some projects include gardening, building porches, painting murals, and harvesting raspberries and wild rice. After a break for lunch with the community, some team members continue working on the project site, while others talk with community members, make traditional Native American jewelry or visit local schools. Team members return to their cabins to have a group dinner of wild rice, venison and fry bread and afterwards have time to journal, play games and visit with the community before heading to bed.
