In October, 2005, NAI began an innovative, pilot project focused on creating educational materials that weave together NASA science and Navajo cultural teachings. To mark the end of the project and the beginning of new collaborations, NAI is hosting a “Sustainability Seminar” in Window Rock, Arizona – the seat of the Navajo Nation – on August 10-11, 2006.

The goal of this seminar is to bring together educators from NASA, the Navajo Nation, and other tribes to use the pilot project as a context for discussing issues with “dual-learning,” share ideas and resources, and network toward future collaborations.
