While a number of public school students in Maine have had exposure to Wabanaki history and culture, very few have experienced Wabanaki approaches to teaching and learning, which differ from standard teaching practices. By working with Wabanaki artist, Mihku Paul, who is experienced in curriculum enrichment, students were guided to work collaboratively in small groups; plan the art making process based on group consensus; learn with the teacher, rather than from the teacher; and insert their voices into the final artworks which is all part of being grounded in Wabanaki culture.
