The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians will implement a 24-month project to increase digital literacy through the development of two culturally-tailored and multi-week digital literacy programs: eBook Clubs (with up to 20 participants in each session) and Digital Storytelling Workshops (with up to 10 participants in each session). These activities directly target young adults (11-17 years old), adults (18-54 years old) and elders (55 years old and older,) and will increase visitorship and usage, and build cultural intergenerational connectedness. Intended outcomes for audience members are an increase in knowledge of digital literacy tools and cultural themes/topics; an increase in attitude toward cultural connectedness and intergenerational relationships and an increase in behaviors promoting family history development and participation in cultural and community activities and ways of being.
