Through this project, tribal and non-tribal youth will collaboratively create digital stories around the following themes: tribal sovereignty, fishery treaty rights, tribally-led environmental protection and restoration policies in Puget Sound, student intercultural communication experiences, and the future of Puget Sound restoration. The researchers aim to improve intercultural communication and collaboration and build long-lasting alliances between participants. The stories’ content will be featured online, in UW curriculums, in a K-12 curriculum, and through public viewing events. The researchers will collect data on public response to the stories in order to measure their impact on opinions of the aforementioned themes.
