dc.description.abstract As stated in the thesis project, "In an effort to best utilize the human, natural and financial resources of the Crow Tribe, the Crow Tribal Council established educational programs and an institution to better educate the membership. The resources are there, but the majority of the tribal members do not understand the concepts of community economic development (CED). To develop the valuable resources and meet the needs of the people and to improve the social and economic conditions, the people need to be enlightened in the area of community economic development. Members of the Crow Tribe, who comprise the Crow Tribal Council, felt the best method to better utilize the Crow resources for future generations was to educate the adolescent. As part of the efforts to maximize the Crow resources, the Crow Tribal Council established the Little Big Horn College as an educational institution to teach students and interested adults, who want to major in modern science, technology, engineering, and math. Thus, the Apsaalooke Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Project was formed at the college, which provided critical academic development and support services to high school students and STEM majors at the college by establishing "Two Plus Two" agreements with the high schools located near and on the Crow reservation, which are: Hardin, Lodge Grass and Plenty Coups. Little Big Horn College provided guidelines in a packet custom designed and arranged according to science, technology, engineering, and math curricula. This on-going project prepared students at the high school level who have ambitions to become STEM majors at the college. Upon the graduation of STEM students from college, it is with the intention that the students will re-invest their knowledge to identify maximum methods to develop the human, natural, and financial resources of the Crow Tribe. My project's objective was to educate indigenous people, strengthen and consolidate CED, provide leadership, design, improve and engage direct and indirectly all activities necessary to further my main purpose for CED based on modern science, technology, engineering and math."
