“How the Chipmunk Got Its Stripes”
By: Longhouse Media & Tulalip Heritage High School
“How the Chipmunk Got Its Stripes” is a traditional Tulalip story of how Chipmunk got its stripes. The stop motion animation was created by students at Tulalip Heritage High School in Tulalip, WA with Longhouse Media.
The short film shows the unique and creative ways Indigenous communities can infuse technology to help protect and preserve traditional stories while engaging younger generations.
Longhouse Media worked with the high school students in helping them produce, animate, and edit the film. Longhouse Media, a Native run non-profit based in Seattle, WA seeks to support Indigenous peoples and communities to use media as a tool for self-expression, cultural preservation, and social change.
