Developed as a result of the second 5-day American Indian Culture-Based Curriculum Workshop conducted in Tacoma, Washington, the resource guide presents materials oriented toward Native American dance, music, and games, which were the major thrust of the workshop. The guide provides four flannelboard stories/legends (How Man Was Created, The Gull Tells a Story, Why the Bear Waddles when He Walks, and Thunderbird and Whale); six games, dances, and physical activities (including Double Ball: Billets, Hand Games, Juggling, The Totem Pole); a legend of Mount Adams; a music activity (What's in a Powwow); four puppet shows (Grandpa Littlebear Talks About Northwest Indian Music, Origin of the Sweat Lodge, The Day the Thunderbird Brought a Message from the Creator of Life, and The Witch and Her Four Sons); and eight crafts and things to make (including Cherokee Horn Rattle, Chippewa Style Ribbon Work, Indian Suitcase, Micmac Canoe). Each activity contains the purpose of the activity, materials needed, learning objectives, extended activities, resources used, background information (if available), narrative test of story, procedure of conducting activity, and patterns or illustrations to present the activity.
