Telling Our Stories, Imagining Our Futures

This collaborative project is built on a longstanding partnership between UW’s Pipeline Project and Neah Bay Elementary School and has been developed to address a community-identified need. The result is an exciting new project that will focus on encouraging Neah Bay students to envision their futures. The goal will be to not only have Native students see themselves pursuing higher education, but learning, as early as fifth grade, of career paths that could ensure their being able to live and thrive in Neah Bay after graduation.


Be part of an exciting long-term project working with Native youth in Neah Bay

Using oral histories, digital storytelling, and photography, UW students will learn about the rich history and culture of the Makah people while mentoring 5th grade students in the creation of a digital storytelling that celebrates their Native culture and identifies pathways to meaningful careers in their own community.

This is a rewarding three-quarter commitment for fall, winter, and spring, including Spring Break!


The three quarter commitment includes:

  • Two day training at the UW: 9/14 – 9/15 (10:00 – 3:00)
  • Visit to Neah Bay: 9/16-9/21
  • Once a week autumn and winter quarter seminar. Time TBD by the cohort and facilitator.
  • Travel to Neah Bay for ASB  from 3/17 – 3/22
  • Once a week seminar during spring break. Time TBD by the cohort and facilitator.


Applications are due May 24th, 2018 at 5:00 pm. You can submit your application HERE!
