Duluth Cohort

The Duluth Cohort has formed an Indigenous Women’s Water Sisterhood to highlight the historical and ongoing relationship Native American peoples have with the Lake Superior watershed. Activities are underway to create an outdoor classroom, ceremony space, and signage along the St. Louis River trail. The space and historical knowledge will provide experiential learning opportunities for students and community members. The Duluth team is creating a website to provide a toolkit and K-12 curriculum that focuses on Native American history, epistemologies, science, and resources for students, teachers, and faculty engagement. The Indigenous Women’s Water Sisterhood is guided by an elder according to traditional protocol.
