Hands-on activities using authentic materials and techniques which can be implemented by educators with their students. These unique activities directly reinforce and complement learning from ‘The People of Cascadia- Pacific Northwest Native American History’ and other curricula. They were designed by Heidi Bohan after many years of experience working in the schools to implement hands-on activities with students using real plant materials, with tools and supplies which closely represent what was traditionally used, yet are easy enough for educators with little training to share with their students.
