"Hogan Dreams" is a set of poems, autobiographical stories, theoretical musings and songs portraying a Navajo curriculum development project. In the Preamble to the piece, the author discusses the process of art making as being, in some ways, parallel to social science practices, thus qualifying art making as a legitimate form of research. The author also notes the ways in which art making is a distinctive form of research. In the Postscript to the piece, the author discusses how art making can be useful for the practice of evaluation as it allows evaluators and receivers of evaluations to have an experience that brings them into fruitful closer proximity with the situation under evaluation.
