Cosmic Serpent – IEI has completed the Cosmic Serpent grant. The NSF funded program was implemented from 2007 to 2012. Partners in the program were the Space Sciences Lab, University of California, Berkeley (UCB), National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) with evaluations from Institute of Learning Innovation and Native Pathways. During the time of the program we delivered professional development workshops in three regions: Southwest, Pacific Northwest including Alaska, and California/Hawaii, and a culminating conference held in Taos, NM. Cosmic Serpent served 162 practitioners from 41 science centers/museums and 42 tribal/cultural museums and/or communities. We published a legacy book “Cosmic Serpent: Collaboration with Integrity” which outlines our process (based on the Dine Cosmic Model) and highlights our workshops and deliverables. The book can be ordered from IEI’s website Sharing the Skies.
