Iñupiaq Language and Culture Video LessonsBook - 2014
"The materials provided here consist of six short videos and six lessons about Iñupiaq language and culture. Eash is based on an historic cultural heritage object from the collections of the National Museum of Natural History or the National Museum of the American Indian, both part of the Smithsonian Institution. These objects range from hunting tools used for living from the land and sea to ceremonial items used at celebrations and gatherings to everyday clothing. The information shared about them and about life in northwest Alaska enables learners to explore the cultural traditions of the Iñupiaq people. The videos are in Iñupiaq with subtitles in English and Iñupiaq , for following along in both languages. Each six-page lesson includes: three pages of materials to review before watching the video; one page with questions to think about and words to listen for during the film; and two post-viewing pages with activities." --Teacher's guide.
