New! Amah Mutsun Youth Walk for Juristac MINI-LESSONS

Welcome, teachers. This page contains resources and activities for students regarding Juristac, Amah Mutsun history, and related subjects. This collection of resources is a work in progress, and additional materials and activities will be added based on the feedback we receive from classrooms. While the activities here are tailored to a high school learning level, they can easily be adapted and used in many different grade levels and instructional settings.

We invite and encourage your feedback and stories of classroom experiences while teaching with these materials. Please contact us by email at curriculum [at]

Juristac curriculum: Activities and study guides

The following activities and exercises are aligned with the English Language Arts (ELA) and History/Social Studies Common Core State Standards. In these activities, you will find opportunities to engage your students in meaningful research into local history, reflective discussion, critical thinking, and persuasive writing. We have prepared a Standards Alignment Guide (PDF, 3 pages) that provides a detailed list of standards aligned with the activities and a chart outlining which standards are covered by each assignment.

Additional resources for educators

This list will be expanded periodically. Email us if you are looking for resources around a particular topic related to Juristac or the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band that you are not finding here.
