Little Turtle Island

The Little Turtle Island project was created in 1997 by Jan Harper-Whale, teacher and coordinator of Art, on the Isle Of Wight, UK when Native American culture was introduced into the National Curriculum. The history, culture and Earth wisdom was combined to bring an exciting approach for the children. Enthusiasm grew and soon the project was taken from the classroom out into the environment. Regular workshops took place, along with visits to Native American events in London and the South. The children met Native American leaders and Elders.

Little Turtle Island is honored to have the involvement of the Sisseton Dakota Sioux from Pipestone Minnesota.
