S.E.A.L.S. is the study of Southeast Alaska lifestyles and cultures. Students will have the opportunity to direct their own learning by deciding on a traditional Native Arts Project. Projects may include: beginning cedar bark or ravens tail weaving, Northwest coast stain glass design, and beginning sewing with leather and fur or small regalia pieces. Students gain an understanding of Tlingit and Haida traditions through story telling, songs, and basic language skills. This course is designed to celebrate all cultures, promote cultural values for an honorable life, and encourage participation/support of cultural community events.
