The Bear River Band of Rohnerville Rancheria will teach traditional skills and cultural practices that are not currently practiced by tribal members by expanding cultural workshops, classes, and events. Participatory community-centered experiences will focus on the creation of both regalia and everyday objects. To reach as many tribal members as possible, especially those not living on the reservation, the tribe will develop associated educational materials including short instructional videos, slideshows of workshop activities, and newsletters, all of which may be accessed for future reference. The twice-weekly intergenerational learning events will reconnect youth and their families with tribal history and cultural practices, and produce a sense of pride and ownership of cultural objects created together.
