How To Kits and Language Activities

Language in the Home is our first How To Kit. It was first developed by the Northwest Territories Literacy Council ( The Department of Native American Languages at the Sam Noble Museum received permission to adapt the handbook for Oklahoma tribes. In addition to changing some wording and much of the clip art, we added local recipes and the handgame activity. Maya Torralba, a Junior Coordinator for the 2012 Fair, and Mary Linn, Curator of Native Languages, made these changes. Andy Allen created some of the original artwork specific to Oklahoma cultures. Hadley Jerman, the graphic artist at the museum, redesigned the beautiful look and made clip art from student poster art.

Please feel free to download the How to Kit and make as many copies as you need. Download your copy here or on the picture of the kit on the right bar. The kit is in .pdf format and is 11MB.

We hope that you like the handbook and use it. Photocopy and use these activities at home and in your programs and adapt them to meet your needs.
