I finished the All School page, and have emailed the staff page in progress to Alex with directions to get titles and names OKed, find out who is missing and send me names/photos tomorrow. I found pictures of artwork from Misty's language program: illustrations to Bear and Ant, and Raven Steals the Sun. I love Bear and Ant - it would be totally cool to have it in Lushootseed accompanied by the children's drawings. Bear and Ant would make a great movie in SL, too.
In the olden times the Bear and the Ant were leaders of the animal people, and they had a dispute about time. Bear wanted* a year of light, a year of dark. Ant wanted day and night, as it is now. They had a dance contest to settle how time should be. Ant wore a big belt and drew it in tighter and tighter** as she danced. They each sang as they danced about the times division they wanted. Bear nodded off and Ant won - so we have day and night. I picture Ant in a jingle dress dancing - I can see her so clearly!
**that's why ants have such tiny waists
