Activities consist of nine flannelboard stories (including The Fire War, How Coyote Made the Columbia River, Legend of the Mayan Moon God); two games (American Indian Games and Indian Picture Symbol Checkerboard); three panel stories (Maiden of Deception Pass, Why the Buffalo Lost a War, and Raven and Snipe--A Fable of the Tse-Shant People); an Indian picture writing activity; seven puppet stories (including Brother Salmon and Sister Clam, Grandfather Calls, Origin of the Chinook Indians); and a sign language activity (Thunderbird and Lightning). Each activity contains the purpose of the activity, the technique to use, materials needed, narrative text for the story, procedure for telling the story or playing the game, suggested activities, background information (if available), the reference used, and patterns/illustrations to present the activity. An agenda for the 5-day workshop and a list of participants are also included. (ERB)
