Molly of Denali - Children's Perceptions of Native Peoples Through Media

With this project, we are interested in the ways in which children think and feel about Native peoples. We are actively investigating whether watching contemporary Native children’s media (e.g. Molly of Denali) will affect their perceptions and attitudes. To test this, we are utilizing correlational and longitudinal studies.
