Calendar or Memory String Activity
The Nez Perce people used a variety of ways to remember special events and people in their lives. To remember these events and pass on family history, Nez Perce women would make calendar strings. This activity allows students to make their own calendar or memory string to demonstrate that there are many ways to remember the things that are special to us.
