K’awaika Senior Center Intergenerational Project
Proposed Collaboration with the Laguna Department of Education
ORAL HISTORY EXCHANGE

Project Purpose: To expand the historical knowledge of Laguna students, while also expanding Laguna elder’s social network through an exchange project between the Laguna Department of Education and the K’awaika Senior Center.

Project Summary: The Laguna Rainbow Corporation proposes a joint project that would engage the historical knowledge of elders as a support to classroom teachers and afterschool program providers. The goal would be to engage community elders as resources in developing history lesson plans and in contributing their perspectives and personal experiences regarding historical points in time. Unifying the generations at strategic points in the year has the potential to promote respect and shared knowledge across the ages immediately and with resources in hand.

The project would potentially improve our elders’ social network with students in both the elementary and middle schools, while also reinforcing a students’ respect for their elders through classroom exchange and K’awaika Senior Center events or presentations. This type of exchange would also support student skills development through the process of preparing presentations, practicing public speaking, and learning unique ways to share what they have learned from oral histories shared by their elders.

The proposed timeframe for this engagement could begin as soon as the spring of 2014 through a community or afterschool event or activity. The K’awaika Senior Center hosts the Laguna Senior Olympics. With the Olympics occurring this year of 2014, an exchange between our elders and our students could be centered on what we know about the Olympics globally and what our local Senior Olympians are practicing and have excelled at in past games.

    Ever since I was little, the same question has been asked to me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” When I was at the age of four the answer might have been an astronaut or a football player but times have changed. As time progressed it changed to an architect, then to a police officer, and all different types of jobs as I got to college I really started to think about what I want to do. It ranged very much. I wanted to study criminal justice and become a police officer. Then wanted to start my own restaurant. But now I believe my dream occupation after all these years would have to be an athletic director.…

    At the age of six, I struggled to find the meaning behind all of the little iron on patches, and what they had been leading up to. The Gold award, awarded to 5.4% of eligible girls, is the most prestigious award, above a silver and bronze. It definitely isn’t attained without hard work and dedication. The guidelines of the project are clear: you need to exemplify leadership qualities and create a lasting impact in the community. My idea to work with the elderly and the youth group from my church came immediately. Observing my community, I noted that the elderly and youth don’t communicate or interact with one another. I believe that those types of relationships are essential in life, due to my own connection with my grandmother. She is one of the funniest people I know, and even though she is 90, we can still connect on a personal level and laugh at just about anything together. I want others to experience that for themselves, because even though they may be older than us, they are still young at heart, and have all led interesting lives with stories beyond…

    In 2000 the gospel musical I Can Do Bad All by Myself hit stages across the country and especially in Georgia, the beloved older grandmother-like character captured the funny bones of millions and Tyler Perry knew at that point he had made it. Since 1992 he had been producing, directing and starring in the gospel play I Know I’ve Been Changed which he had written but although he had quality material and performers he still did not have the success he was aiming for until 1998. Before becoming “Tyler Perry the most powerful entertainer in Black America” (Childs, 2012) he had to overcome many obstacles and forgive transgressions of others. Tyler was a high school drop-out who eventually earned a GED when statistics have proven that he never should have been a multi-millionaire. He changed his name from Emmitt Perry Jr. at the age of 16 years old in order to distinguish himself from his father.…
