Neah Bay: Telling Our Stories Project


There is still time to be a part of the 2014-2015 digital storytelling project in Neah Bay!

Do you love work­ing with ele­men­tary stu­dents? Are you inter­ested in immers­ing your­self in the beauty and strength of the Native Makah cul­ture in Neah Bay? Consider apply­ing for the “Telling Our Stories” project, a part­ner­ship between the UW’s Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Ele­men­tary School on the Olympic Penin­sula!

Dur­ing the 2014– 2015 school year, a small group of UW stu­dents will take part in a year-long doc­u­men­tary film-making project with Neah Bay Ele­men­tary stu­dents. Using dig­i­tal storytelling (video or docu­men­tary cre­ation), UW stu­dents will learn about the rich his­tory and cul­ture of the Makah peo­ple while men­tor­ing 4th-5th grade stu­dents on cre­at­ing a research project com­par­ing their tribe to another in the U.S..

For addi­tional infor­ma­tion, feel free to con­tact Chris­tine Stick­ler, Direc­tor of the Pipeline Project, at castick.

More information and appli­ca­tions can also be found online: Deadline to apply is Wednesday, June 4 at 5PM!
