This CCE introduces participants to both a non-Western worldview of our human identity and our relationship with the natural world, and it explores how environmental change and culture change are connected. It is conducted in collaboration and partnership with Bad River Band representatives of local Ojibwe communities in the Ashland, Wisconsin area. The course includes an end of Spring semester Saturday morning meeting (mandatory), Summer III online course-work, and a cross-cultural immersion trip at the end of July. See “Is this CCE right for you” for further information and details of the cultural and trip activities.
