Debra Miller, 4th Grade Teacher, Evergreen Elementary School

"Thank you for coming to our school and giving us a different perspective on the history of American Indians. The students and I really enjoyed the program. When we got back to class they discussed how they appreciated being told the "truth" about the wars with the Indians. Although I have always been fascinated with the Native American culture. I had never been presented with their perspective in such a way. It made me think. It made the students think. And I thank you for a learning experience I will not forget. You being a keeper of the legends is very impressive to me yet must be an awesome responsibility for you. In class I enjoy using mythology and legends of different tribes to explain where spiders came from, why bats fly at night, etc. The students are very attentive to these stories and usually ask, "Is it true?" Please let me know if there is a particular resource of legends that would be suitable for sharing with fourth graders. Again, thank you for your time and efforts. It was a wonderful production/history lesson.
