The Crow Canyon education department engages learners of all ages in an inclusive and dynamic study of the human past. The staff works toward this goal by teaching about past and present cultures of the Southwest, investigating student learning, and communicating the Center's educational methods and theories to others. The work of the department is guided by a respect for, and is conducted in collaboration with, American Indians. Archaeology, education, and applied anthropology provide the academic foundation for Crow Canyon programs.
Principles That Guide Our Work
Crow Canyon's innovative education programs not only provide instruction in archaeology, but also involve the lay public in the actual research process. This firsthand approach increases awareness of, and appreciation for, our rich cultural heritage, while providing broad-based support for archaeological research and preservation. Through Crow Canyon's programs, students of all ages gain an understanding of culture, American Indian history, archaeological research, human interaction with the environment, and the importance of cultural resource preservation.
On-campus learning centers recreate ancestral Pueblo lifeways and allow students to immerse themselves in the study of the past.
Outreach initiatives allow us to extend our nationally recognized programs to students and educators beyond our campus borders.
