On Wednesday, May 15, the Navajo Oral History project class met again via Interactive Television between Winona State University and Diné College. Students in groups at both locations presented research projects on a variety of topics related to life and culture on the Navajo Nation.
Projects discussed government, law enforcement, economy, education, health care, population demographics, tourism, family relationships, and other topics.
Below are a number of photos showing each of the WSU students while making their presentations.
It may seem like Winona State is hogging all the attention on the blog. That's about to end. The Winona group travels this weekend to Diné College's main campus in Tsaile, Arizona, in the central part of the Navajo Nation. For the next three weeks, the students from both schools will work together in groups to research, interview, record, transcribe, edit, and produce documentary films on the lives of Navajo elders.
The students will also be taking photos of themselves and each other in the process of doing their journalism projects. Many of these photos will find their way to this blog over the next several weeks.
Thanks for reading the blog and sending your positive thoughts to this group of dedicated journalism students. Fell free to add some comments to the blog.
