Tapestry Institute at Sowbelly Ranch
Tapestry Institute is a unique research organization, the only one of its kind founded and headed by a Native person, Dawn Adams, Ph.D.
Tapestry's mission is to understand different ways of knowing, learning about, and responding to the natural world. They carry out original research on how people learn through art, story, science, and nature-experience -- educational ways new to Western culture but traditional to Indigenous peoples -- and carry out additional research on how such methods of learning can be applied effectively to adult- and family-education venues.
Tapestry's Horse-Human Relationship Program
the ways horses influence and teach humans and the mutual
benefits of this relationship. Projects include the Mustang
, which saves older mustangs from slaughter
and provides them with a lifelong home, the Trailmaster
, which explores the impact of trail riding on
individual process in workshop and workgroup settings, and
, which allows a horse to help a
person center and balance in many ways while riding bareback.
