  Building a Havakani

We filmed Luther Girado teaching a group of men from the community to build a traditional summer house of willows on an old village site in Walker Basin. Then we created immersion-style language learning materials including four lesson plans, a DVD, and an audio CD so that our community may learn about our traditions. Language teachers may draw on this media at any time in the future.

Completed in 2008, this project was funded by the Alliance for California Traditional Arts and the Native Cultures Fund.
