Students will develop knowledge and understanding of traditional Hupa, Yurok, and Karuk land-related values and special relationships to land that form the foundation for Indian cultural identity and sense of place on earth.
Students will explore vast differences in Native and non-Native cultures and conceptions of land. Students will participate in a discussion of how European and Indigenous views of land tenure differed. Then they will particpate in and complete the “Debating for Land” activity.
In this lesson, students will find and research places that have significant meaning to the Hoopa, Yurok, and Karuk tribal people. Learning more about these places and the stories associated with them will help students define who they are, where they come from, and why this land, their home land, is so special to the people that live here.
Students will be able to identify the different materials used in basketry; know when each material is ready for harvest; and name the materials by looking at samples in raw form and in samples of baskets.
