Biographical/Historical note

In Spring 1969, amidst a growing awareness of Native American students, Washington State University (WSU) instituted the Native American Studies Program (NASP). Initially, the program focused on hiring qualified instructors and administrators, locating and recruiting Native American students, providing those students with financial assistance, and giving guidance regarding various education and employment opportunities. In its formative years, the NASP went through various stages of uncertainty including successive semesters when no Native American Studies courses could be offered. However, in 1974, under the directorship of Richard Bellon, the department offered a minor in Native American Studies.

From Fall 1975 to Spring 1976 WSU led the Bilingual Bicultural Training Institute which aimed to provide teacher-aide training, teacher training, and administrative workshops for school districts with high Chicano and Native American enrollment. The American Indian Teacher Aide Program (AITAP) component was coordinated through B.A. Nugent, the Dean of the Division of Social Sciences and Humanities, with Florence Haggerty as the project director. It received funding from Title I and the Johnson O’Malley Consortium. In 1975, AITAP administered a Summer Institute which supplied teacher-aides with topical information ranging from Native American history to student alcoholism. Subsequently, AITAP offered monthly day-long workshops to address specific issues teachers faced in the classroom.

Arrangement note

The collection is arranged by subject, filed in loose chronological order and is arranged into two series which each comprise the original accessions. Series 1, the American Indian Teacher Aide Program (AITAP), originally UA 82-22, is divided into three sub-series. Subseries 1.1 includes correspondence, grant information, the AITAP project overview, and the travel requests and vouchers of AITAP staff. Subseries 1.2 includes all materials from the 1975 Summer Institute. Subseries 1.3 includes workshop materials, and AITAP reports and evaluations. Series 2, the Native American Studies Program (NASP), originally UA 80-09, is also divided into three subseries. Subseries 2.1 includes NASP curriculum development information, temporary course information, conference agendas, NASP Newsletters, and other related materials. Subseries 2.2 includes administrative correspondence, budget information, and Travel requests/vouchers. Subseries 2.3 includes materials that indirectly relate to the WSU NASP.
