DURHAM, N.H. -- The Center for New England Culture at the University of New Hampshire will sponsor a free teacher institute on Native American culture and curriculum development July 15-17, 2002, at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center in Connecticut.

The institute is free for teachers (with an emphasis on elementary and middle schools) and librarians, but capacity is limited to 25 teachers, drawn from all six New England states. Groups of teachers from individual schools or districts are encouraged to apply. Housing and meals will be provided free of charge at a local college.

Funding for the institute is provided by a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and by the UNH Center for New England Culture. Participants can receive CEUs or graduate credit through UNH's Division of Continuing Education for a fee.

For further information and registration, contact David Watters, Center for New England Culture, Huddleston Hall, UNH, Durham, NH 03824; (603) 862-0353, dhw@cisunix.unh.edu.
