Abstract

The Woodlands Wisdom Nutrition Project represents a proactive approach of Tribal Colleges to address food and health concerns of indigenous communities. Befitting the unique mission of Tribal Colleges, Woodlands Wisdom has created a food and nutrition curriculum where local tribal culture and knowledge interfaces with nutrition science principles. A conceptual model of this approach is presented and discussed within a cross-cultural context. Although student outcome data are not yet reported, the model offers several considerations for nutrition educators working within cross-cultural contexts.
