This Miami University study away, summer workshop offers students a unique service learning opportunity that provides a cultural immersion experience in a Native American community, the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma (ESTOO). Students will gain cross-cultural perspectives via inter-cultural contact as they work directly with tribal members to assist at the ESTOO Youth Culture Camp.  The workshop is 6 credit hours.  Note the workshop can be combined with an additional course (core foundational course, see instructor) to complete a self-designed thematic sequence.
