  Program JR - SRJunior - Senior 12 12 Day FFall WWinter SSpring The Reservation-Based Community-Determined (RBCD) program is an upper-division program designed specifically for students residing on or connected to reservations. Students meet two evenings a week at a tribal site to build and sustain a learning community at the reservation. In addition, students from all sites meet four Saturdays per quarter for classes at the Longhouse. Tribes help to design the curriculum by addressing the question, "What does an educated tribal member need to know in order to contribute to their community?" The RBCD interdisciplinary approach allows students to participate in seminar, participatory research, and study their individual areas of interest while meeting the challenges and topics identified by the tribes. The 2010-11 academic year theme is Contemporary Indians in a Global Society. In fall, students will engage in work that allows them to understand the historical, cultural, legal and intergovernmental relationship between the tribes as Sovereign Governments and the United States. In winter, they will examine leadership qualities through history, literature and within tribal settings, as they begin to look for applications to the global society. In spring, they will study economic, cultural and environmental sustainability and management within a global context. Students will also have opportunities for independent work and study as well as 1-2 credit strands on a broad range of topics including, art, theater, literature, writing and management.
