The Restoring the River episode follows the Yurok, Karuk and Hupa people of the Klamath River Basin in Northern California as they work with other groups to address the declining salmon population and an unhealthy Klamath River. This river supports the Native peoples and other communities and ecosystems in the area. The curriculum was developed in consultation with the Yurok and Karuk Tribes as well as government agencies and non-profit organizations.
The curriculum provides the opportunity to integrate Native peoples into courses besides social studies like science and environmental studies. It also highlights how Native communities are still here today, active in their traditions as well as active participants in the contemporary world. Specific to the episode, the Tribal groups actively incorporate their collective knowledge of place and western science to help solve environmental problems today.
