How cool Shawn! Laurent is really into Native Americans these days and loved looking at this post. Those woven frogs - amazing. What a great opportunity you had.

Here's a couple authors we've discovered who write Native American historical fiction and folk tales: Paul Goble and Joseph Bruhac. Haven't read too many ourselves to recommend or not but I am reading Winter People by Joseph Bruhac right now and we are enjoying that. Quite detailed and very historically accurate (I think).

Love your daughter's drawing.


What a cool experience! Those frogs are amazing! I love hearing all the different things you guys are experiencing.


What an amazing experience! The artwork looks like Tlingit? It's beautiful!

You should check out Gene Tagaban, The Raven Dancer. He's a Tlingit storyteller who performs locally and opened the urban longhouse recently.

Yes, Syndi, there's more to that story! I will definitely look into Gene Tagaban, I know exactly who he is, and Bill James, and Swil Kanim. We are so excited for all of this right now!
I ordered a Time Travelers after your cool reviews and projects. I am excited to look at it. I think I'll also plan to have a History Day like you do. You are just what I needed, a local seasoned homeschooler with awesome ideas freely shared! Thank you!

  • I love my life! I have three zippy kids, an amazing husband, and charming friends and family. I strive to be like the Proverbs 31 woman, but could use a whole lot of improvement. :) I love helping people meet their health and financial goals as an AdvoCare advisor! (And to keep it real... there's probably a big pile of laundry needing to be folded and crumbs on the floor, but I do love my life!)

We LOVE, love this:
