Bush Fellowship

Saint Paul, MN—The loss of language in the American Indian community erodes the ability to pass on cultural values and norm, which in turn negatively affects early childhood development. My fellowship will address the need for a culturally specific early childhood learning opportunity for the American Indian community. I plan to pursue the merger of one of the most premier early learning models, the Association Montessori International method, with a language revitalization effort.
