On The Road to Find Out: Passionate Engagement and Counter-Cartography

communityworksinstitute.org [cached]

By BRAD HOUK
Brad Houk is an educator, counter-cartographer, and faculty member of CWI's Summer Institute on Service-Learning. After spending years teaching at-risk students in Vermont, Navajo students on a reservation in New Mexico, Quaker students in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and advanced degree People's Liberation Army officers in China, he now teaches at the Community College of Vermont. Pulling from his academic background in design and education, Brad has been using "counter-maps" to invigorate his classroom. Most recently, however, Brad has been counter-mapping his local community, as well as aspects of the Occupy Movement, in an effort to not only understand a community more deeply (and the many ways it can be experienced) but to explore how this process can be used as a tool for service-learning and a method in civic- and community-engagement. EDITOR'S NOTE: Following the student project with counter-maps, Brad and his teenage son spent a few weeks in the summer with the Occupy movement in the United States, in part to explore new ideas for mapping projects. "I had my doubts about Brad from the very beginning. You may not believe in Brad, but I do. I believe Brad," Jake then turned and walked back to the tent he was taking down and packing. That ended the confrontation between me and Troy. But I can't be sure if Troy believed Jake before he too returned to his business as one of the organizers of the march.

New England Anti-Mascot Coalition

Brad Houk, author of the letter thanked the Board for reading the letter.
His point in the letter is that he is not defending the Mascot. He brought a small bank that he bought in Chester to make a point of attitudes in this area. He said the NCAA said the use of American Indians as mascots is harmful and hostile. He feels that this is institutionalized racism as there are images of Chieftains everywhere. Bumper stickers state that Chieftains have no reservations. Brad read a letter from a friend of his who is Navajo Indian. The letter was addressed to WSWSU/Ed Brown - Superintendent and the Green Mountain Board. He talked of the perceptions of the mascot at the college he attended and how it was changed from the Raiders to the Sky Hawks. The use of an Indian with full headdress is stereotyping all American Indians.
