Kwakwaka’wakw Potlatch

This 45-minute live digital program is adapted from MOA’s onsite Kwakwaka’wakw Potlatch school program, developed in collaboration with Chief Robert Joseph. Students will explore key themes of transformation, ancestry and oral history 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 class activities. These prerequisite lessons accompany the live digital component.
