The Nebraska Humanities Council (NHC) recently awarded $13,120 to UNL’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications for an institute to develop a companion K-12 curriculum for Native Daughters magazine. The curriculum was made available free-of-charge to Nebraska’s teachers in early November through the Nebraska Department of Education website (click here to view the complete curriculum). The curriculum, written by Nebraska teachers, includes seven units that reflect the seven themes of the magazine—lawgivers, artists, environmentalists, storytellers, healers, warriors and leaders. The magazine was created by 24 journalism students as an 18-month project to relay the rich and complex contributions Native women have made to both indigenous and American cultures. An accompanying website was underwritten by a $125,000 Carnegie Foundation grant.
