Tribal Origin Stories

This Tribal Origin Stories lesson plan also includes:

The teacher reads and retells Californian tribal origin or creation stories that come from the traditions of a variety of California Indian tribes. Then, pupils get together in groups and retell the stories they just heard; just as the Indians themselves used to do in order to pass on the stories from generation to generation. Learners then create pictures that illustrate their thoughts on how things must have looked back when animals, land, people, and trees were created. This rich, multi-disciplinary lesson comes highly recommended!
