Kwakwaka’wakw Potlatch (Live Digital)

This 45-minute live digital program is adapted from MOA’s in-person Kwakwaka’wakw Potlatch school program, developed in collaboration with Chief Robert Joseph. In the live digital component, students will explore key themes of transformation, ancestry, oral history, and rights and privileges as knowledgeable facilitators share cultural belongings from MOA’s teaching collection. The live digital component is part of an overall unit plan, with prerequisite lessons that offer Indigenous voices and perspectives, as well as in-class activities. These prerequisite lessons accompany the live digital component.

Once you book this school program, you will receive the complete unit plan (PDF document) by email, along with confirmation of date and time of the live digital component.
