    Culture and Curriculum: The Story of Growing Ute Futures Part 4

    Culture and Curriculum: The Story of Growing Ute Futures Part 4

    The creation of the Kwiyagat Community Academy is the cornerstone of Growing Ute Futures, but it is not the only impact of the endeavor. Growing Ute Futures is an education masterplan for the entire community as  there are so many more families with students –from Kindergarten all through high school—who don’t attend KCA than do. Growing Ute Futures serves students and families of the  entire community to provide more opportunities for all students of Towaoc and strengthen the future of the community. In this final episode in our four-part series, we detail the additional wrap-around services provided by the Growing Ute Futures Initiative.

    Culture and Curriculum: The Story of Growing Ute Futures Part 3

    Culture and Curriculum: The Story of Growing Ute Futures Part 3

    Kwiyagat Community Academy officially opened in 2021 and was finally able to put into practice what had previously just been an abstract plan  – a culture-based curriculum grounded in Ute traditions that also delivers a modern academic education to prepare young students for the world. When you hear the world trailblazing—that’s exactly what this approach is. But the school would only get one shot to implement this approach and prove that it would work. In part three of our four-part series on the Growing Ute Futures initiative, we discuss the results of the Kwiyagat Community Academy.

    In the second part of our four-part series on the Growing Ute Futures initiative, we highlight the bold steps taken by Tribal leaders and their partners to upend generations of educational missed opportunities: the creation of the state’s first-ever tribal-run charter school operation on an Indian Reservation. This is the story of the creation of the Kwiyagat Community Academy.

    Culture and Curriculum: The Story of Growing Ute Futures Part 1

    In 2020, at the direction of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Council, educators, and families, Keystone Policy Center began facilitating strategic planning to develop an innovative, culturally-based education system for students and their families on the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation. A central pillar of this plan was integrating Ute arts, language, and culture into all levels of education, embedded within a curriculum that focused on science, technology, engineering, (Native) arts, and math. The project that eventually emerged became known as Growing Ute Futures, and it aims to provide an innovative, student-focused model of learning and support for all students of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe. But to understand the monumental task this education-centered initiative would be, we first have to revisit the history of education for American Indian and Indigenous children in this country.  In this first of a four-part series, we outline the grim realities faced by Indigenous children who were forcibly removed from their families and cultural environments to attend federally run boarding schools and how the culture of assimilation continued even when the boarding schools ended.

    Agricultural Climate Markets: Taming the Wild Wild West

    Agricultural Climate Markets: Taming the Wild Wild West

    Agricultural soils are a large land-based sink for atmospheric carbon with additional potential to contribute to the sequestration of atmospheric carbon, though questions still remain as to the magnitude and rate of this mitigation opportunity. This potential has spurred a desire to connect growers with carbon markets to realize the environmental and economic value of agricultural practices. Concurrently, the markets are facing increasing scrutiny as well, given the evolving science, the necessity of mitigating our climate impact, and increasing public interest. This episode of Keynotes highlights the work of the Agricultural Climate Market Collaborative,  a voluntary group facilitated by the Keystone Policy Center to identify collective, precompetitive actions that could create more transparency and build trust in the marketplace; provide more coordinated and consistent feedback to protocol bodies, USDA, and others; and ultimately contribute to a clearer marketplace that can scale towards meaningful impact.
