Inative shorts for kids

educational short clips for young students, teachers, & Families

Vision Maker Media launched a new program called, iNATIVE Shorts for Kids on its YouTube Channel. Native American Youth (K-8), guardians, and educators looking to learn more about Native American culture in their own community and other Native Nations can view short 1–5-minute video clips from a selection of VMM finished films. The short stories are to help further the understanding and practice of Native languages, arts, Indigenous science, traditional knowledge, and many of America’s Native American and Alaska Native tribes, and some provide educational children activities.
