San José State University – Student Work

In our Nature and World Cultures class at SJSU, students work on group projects tracing the dynamic relationships between Native Californian tribes and tribal communities and specific aspects of nature.

Student work results in micro-documentaries featured on YouTube, published articles in the newsmagazine Indian Country Today, and projects used by tribal staff and councils.

Highlights from student work include:
