We are thankful for the eager participation of the future elementary teachers class of 2021 in this project and taking the extra steps towards its completion. It has been also a privilege to be part of the Open Educational Resources effort along with the university community OER mini grant recipients of 2020 and its support staff members. We are indebted to Abbey Elder for her guidance and patience. We thank those who developed open educational resources providing the intellectual footsteps accessible to everybody. Finally, our great appreciation goes to Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer who inspired most of our stories.
