Schreiner University’s Center for Innovative Learning will offer a workshop, “Children’s Wisdom: A Native American Approach to Valuing ‘New Eyes,’” 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Saturday, June 2, in the ballroom of the Cailloux student center on the Schreiner campus.

The workshop is part of the Past Is Prologue program that the University co-sponsors with the Past Is Prologue Educational organization. PIP focuses on a Native American (Iroquois) approach to learning based on the Learning Stories. The program originated with the work of the late Paula Underwood, author of “Who Speaks for the Wolf?” and “The Walking People.” Underwood co-founded PIP with the late Jeanne Slobod, Underwood’s friend and mentor.

The June workshop will feature Underwood’s daughter Laurie Roberts, and will focus on using the power of stories in turbulent times. Registration fees are $30 for individuals and $45 for families. For a $50 fee, participants can register for both this workshop and the annual PIP October event. To register, send an e-mail to
