Anthropological studies always begin with discussions of the word anthropology and its meaning. We engage our teachers and children in pondering the questions, “What does it mean to study a group of people? How do we demonstrate respect for the people we study in our actions?” Anthropological studies often begin with a socio-geographic context, then we embark on learning about the people’s lives, traditions, values, and stories.

Past studies include The People of the Pacific Northwest Coast, The Mohawk Ironworkers, The Lenape: Manhattan’s First Inhabitants, and The Inuit.
