The production of the Electronic Field Trip is made possible through a grant from the Nissan Foundation. Established in 1992, the mission of the Nissan Foundation is to build community through valuing cultural diversity. The Nissan Foundation is part of Nissan North America’s commitment to “enrich people’s lives” by helping to meet the needs of communities throughout the United States through philanthropic investments, corporate outreach sponsorships, in-kind donations and other charitable contributions.
The IMC has a 30 year history of disseminating knowledge concerning the rich cultural diversity and creativity of indigenous people. This Electronic Field Trip will make this knowledge available to the classroom for all children to enjoy.
