Module 4 – Post 5: A Journey into Time Immemorial

A Journey into Time Immemorial

In searching for interactive ways to present Indigenous knowledge and culture using technology, I came across this exceptional site. This virtual journey is highly interactive and viewers can explore the village in order to learn about Sto:lo traditional ways of living. Interactive icons, such as villagers, animals, fish, boats, etc. can be selected to find out more information about it or information can be access via the multiple dropdown menus.

In addition, the site also provides resources for educators who wish to use the site for science, social studies, English and language arts, and First Nations’ studies classes. For each class topic, learning outcomes are also provided for students in different grades (6-10). The site also contains video and audio resources such that you can listen to interviews with Elders and community members as well as games and a glossary.

This site would be an excellent resource to learn about the Sto:lo Nation’s traditions and culture. I also believe this would be appealing to a younger demographic and could be used in classrooms.
