Native Teaching Aids board and card games are educational, fun, and promote an atmosphere of cultural and language immersion.
Tribal History Games
Our tribal history games offer a comprehensive view of a specific tribe's history from an Indigenous perspective. Each timeline-based card game, is created in collaboration with the focus tribe and distributed with their approval. We currently offer Blackfeet, Salish and Pend d'Orielle, and Little Shell editions, and at least nine more are expected to be published in the near future. Our history game series is appropriate for 2-8 players, ages 8 and above.
Regional History Games
Native Teaching Aids has also created a series of 12 regional history games, each teaching the history of indigenous people in a particular area of North America.
In addition, we offer the Montana Native History game, which details the history of the Indigenous people who have inhabited the land we now know as Montana.
Social and Legal Issues
Our Laws and Treaties game takes a comprehensive look at the laws and treaties made, altered, and broken between the indigenous people and the U.S. and Canadian governments.
The Indigenous Rights Game allows players to learn about the rights given to Indigenous People by the U.S. and Canadian governments, and how those rights have been upheld or abandoned.
Language and Culture Games
Each of our language and culture games are designed and developed in collaboration with and with the approval of tribal leaders and councils. The language, linguistics, and cultural content represent the tribe's heritage and are focused on specific goals. Our games are designed for specific age ranges, preschool through adult.
All of our products are created in such a way that they can be readily transformed to represent another language and culture. We currently offer games in the Salish, Blackfeet, Little Shell and Crow languages, and a wide variety of new products are currently being developed with eight additional tribes. Watch for upcoming exciting games!
