aboriginal feltboard stories

Our early primary classes have been enjoying two feltboard stories from district kits created to support aboriginal cultural awareness. Both of these Pacific Northwest Coast stories involve highly detailed and culturally accurate felt pieces.

The first one we read was the Haida story of Raven and the First Peoples and introduces the students to the aboriginal connection to the environment as well as introducing cultural artifacts and customs.
The next story is called The Gathering Day and focuses on seasonal activities and how food (berries, plants and salmon) are preserved for the winter.
