Tlingit Survival Practices and Stories with Activity Folder.
Students learn Tlingit survival practices and lore in this booklet of stories and learning activities. Five readings discuss fire making methods, edible wild foods, weather conditions, and shelter; information is related to the resources of Southeast Alaska and to typical survival situations; e.g., storms at sea and dense fogs. Narratives relate one legendary and one factual survival story. Suggested activities for students include interviewing friends and relatives to learn additional survival practices and stories of survival; identifying edible foods of Southeast Alaska woods, streams, and beaches; and using primitive methods of fire building. An attached activity folder of 14 worksheets and answer keys provides games to build vocabulary related to the readings, hypothetical survival problems for group and individual solution, and directions for making kites and simulating fog.
