Dr. James Bequette's current inquiry in art education centers on Minnesota Native populations and is inspired by 15 years spent teaching in K-12 schools with mostly American Indian students. He focus's on the role art education - when culturally relevant and taught from a critical perspective - can play in improving American Indian school success and White students' understanding of colonization's impact on Native material culture. He also studies how infusing non-Western cultural knowledge in elementary arts curriculum reinforces mathematics, science, and language arts learning, and state-level education policy relevant to art teacher licensure and academic standards for visual and media arts.
