.Native American Indian traditional teachings hold the key to continuity of life on this planet, if we do not incorporate these traditional laws, ecological knowledge, beliefs, and spirituality back into our communities and laws, no one will survive." (Kanatiyosh, 1999).
Old Crow: Land of the Vuntut Gwitch'in
The Vuntut Gwitch'in have made a homepage about their land "to share our deep concerns about the possible threats to our culture and lifestyle, which would result from development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, the birthing grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd" which they still hunt. The pages were written by children, parents and elders and they "want the people of the world to know about the many challenges we face in order to continue our lifestyle, which was lived for many generations in harmony with the ecosystem." This would be a fun K-12 resource. (1996).
Project Willow: Understanding Native American Culture Through Enviromental Education

It traces Washoe encounters with the local environment in both traditional and modern times." (Department of Teaching and Learning Technologies, University of Nevada, Reno, 1998).
