Biology, ecology, engineering, materials science: all of these and more are embedded in the traditional halibut fishing technology of the Lingít, Haida, and Tsimshian people (Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI), 2018; Smythe, 2018). SHI’s “Design, Construction & Use Of Traditional Halibut Hooks: A teaching guide for educators” (2018) is an incredible example of a culturally sustaining STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) curriculum that guides students on a multi-week exploration integrating Indigenous and western ways of knowing. Students research the Pacific Halibut species, collect data on halibut heads for indirect measurement, make and test the strength of cordage, and ultimately design and build their own traditional halibut hook. We were unable to invite in a carving specialist this year to guide the students through constructing wooden hooks, so this lesson was developed to replace Lesson 8 of the unit and make use of our 3D printing capabilities. Without being able to fish our 3D-printed hooks, the authentic learning task shifted from using the hooks to investigating their proportions and teaching the public about them via a display at the local public library.
