Activities ideas

Invite your family to watch an interview together.

This shared experience could lead to a family discussion about…

  • something you learned from the elder.
  • questions you have about an activity or experience the elder described.
  • how an activity the elder described has changed.


  • Draw a picture of the elder.
  • Try to imagine what the elder looked like as a child, a teenager, then make a drawing from this period in the elder’s life.
  • Draw a scene or location that the elder described.


  • Retell an event or story told by an elder, then share it with a friend or family member.
  • If you could change something in the event or story, what would it be and why?
  • Create a story with one or more elder as an important character.
