Native American Stories and Science Education Connections

(now housed on the OSPI website)

In addition to tribal stories from across the state, this resource provides alignment to the Next Generation Science Standards and possible lesson suggestions on how these stories can be incorporated into the classroom.

Roger Fernandes, a citizen of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, shares several tribal stories from tribes from across the state and region. Mr. Fernandes has been given permission by the tribes to tell these stories. Transcripts are now available for each of the stories.
