Woven Together is an interactive story that students can work through to learn about the history and culture of the Nuu-chah-nulth people of the Pacific Northwest. As students move through the story they can click on the Nuu-chah-nulth words to hear them pronounced and to read their definitions. The story is arranged in seven parts based on images associated with the history and culture of the Nuu-chah-nulth people. After finishing the story students can find directions for trying their hands at weaving (with supervision of course).
Applications for Education
Woven Together could be a good interactive resource to use in elementary school or middle school lessons about the traditions and history of various groups of Native Americans. Woven History’s inclusion of audio files that play the words makes it useful for introducing students to some new words.
I learned about Woven Together in Larry Ferlazzo’s list of sites for International Day of the Indigenous People.
