To accompany our 10-part video series, we have created a PDF booklet, INDIGENOUS VOICES: Resources for Teachers and Lifelong Learners, written and compiled by Jennifer Lee (Northern Narragansett), and edited and formatted by Dorothea Sotiros.
This 54-page PDF booklet features chapters for each of the videos and includes:
• definitions of words heard in the film
• suggested questions for teachers
• links to additional resources for further learning
In addition, separate chapters from this booklet pertaining to each video are available for download on the webpage for each video.
