Yakama story backpack

This robotics activity was designed in partnership with Native Girls Code

We chose this story from the Yakama Nation. This story is important to us because of its lessons and its teachings about perseverance, not judging a person by how they act, and the value of passing on knowledge to others. We encourage you to explore these lessons in this story too.

Listen to the story of ay-ay-esh Girl together.
