Native peoples have always used words and images to weave relevant and meaningful stories. Historically, our stories have endured through spoken word, and our very cultures and lifeways have lived on through the remembering and sharing of those stories. To help drive awareness and investment in Native communities, digital storytelling can be an effective and powerful tool.
The Digital Storytelling Toolkit provides an overview of the components of stories, including the role of the storyteller and the importance of being personal, authentic, knowledgeable, and relatable. It provides examples of how stories can be captured and presented on websites through impact stories, blog posts, and videos. It also includes activities and best practices on how those stories can gain more exposure through digital press releases, email, and social media.
