Using a Medicine Wheel Logic Model (MWLM) approach to Native American studies program development is one way that the Northern Michigan University Center for Native American Studies draws on local Indigenous cultural traditions to help guide their efforts. The MWLM used in these efforts comes from Anishinaabe cultural traditions. It incorporates identification, planning, implementation, and reflection. A focal point of this session will be the Native American Studies Sustainable Online Programming Project (NASSOPP). NASSOPP was partially a response to the COVID pandemic and the need to pivot to an online presence in order to sustain curriculum delivery during a time of crisis.
