Ph.D., University of New Mexico. Dr. Schulte specializes in multicultural education, Alaska Native cultures, sociocultural change, and archaeology of southeast Alaska.
Priscilla Schulte has been teaching on the Ketchikan campus since 1980 and has been teaching distance classes for over ten years. Most of her students are in southeast Alaska, but some are from as far away as Connecticut. Priscilla has taught summer classes on the Juneau campus as well as distance delivery classes by video and audio conference to the Juneau campus. She teaches primarily lower division anthropology and sociology classes, as well as multicultural education classes.Priscilla started her teaching career by teaching anthropology at Dine College (formerly Navajo Community College) now located in Tsaile, Arizona. Her anthropological fieldwork in Arizona and Chicago sparked her interest in completing an M.A. in anthropology at the University of Connecticut. During her years of living and teaching on the Navajo Nation, she began her doctoral work at the University of New Mexico which she completed after her move to Alaska in 1980.Priscilla’s research and teaching interests are in multicultural education, Alaska Native cultures (primarily of southeast Alaska), and Native American culture change. She produced the video, “The Bear Stands Up,” which has aired on public television. Her most recent research has focused on the totem pole carvers of the CCC era. She is an adopted member of the Tongass Brown Bear clan of the Tlingit people. She is the mother of two daughters who have inspired and encouraged her in her research and teaching. One of the most exciting events of Priscilla’s teaching year is the annual fieldtrip coordinated with the Forest Service to do archaeological and ethnographic fieldwork with local Native elders, cultural teachers, and UAS students. The field trips focus on the survey and inventory of important cultural sites located in southern southeast Alaska.
