Washita Battlefield National Historic Site has partnered with the Cheyenne and Arapaho Department of Education and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College to present a one-day teacher workshop to enable teachers to incorporate Cheyenne and Arapaho history and culture into their classrooms.

A Window on our World has several goals:

  • To create a climate of friendship and understanding between the Cheyenne and Arapaho people and their neighbors.
  • To enrich classroom curriculum by presenting facets of Cheyenne and Arapaho history, culture, tradition, life ways, and language.
  • To introduce teachers and their students to the National Park Service and Washita Battlefield National Historic Site and its natural an cultural resources.
