Abstract:

A student activity book about the Northwest Coast provides "to-do" activities, such as reading, coloring, cutting out and putting together, while learning about the Northwest Coast tribes, their language, legends, clothing and ways of living. A map identifies the tribes and their location along the shores of Alaska, British Columbia, western Washington, western Oregon and northern California. Illustrations to discuss and to color depict historical scenes of daily activity in a longhouse and style of clothing worn, as well as contemporary scenes. Activities include: learning about the totem pole, which tells the history of the location where the pole was erected; making a mobile of objects important to the Northwest Coast tribes, such as a button blanket, canoe, raven bowl, and salmon; constructing a longhouse, learning about the materials it is made of; and reading the legend, "Why Mosquitos Bite" and acting out the characters after making transformation masks. The activity book concludes with a Salmon Game, the gameboard teaches the life cycle of the salmon, its journey to the ocean and back, and the five kinds of salmon. (ERB)
