The Gladstone Indian Education students will participate by visiting our own Lake Michigan as well as the nearby rivers and Bay. They will sit for a half hour and journal every animal and insect that comes to the water to drink. They also will have to look up the message that each of these animals bring to them. Since in the Native Tradition, it is said that each animal is a messenger and carry a message for those who come across it's path. Then, the students have to share their findings with their classroom, parents, and teachers. For their parents, this is a very important piece of information, since many of those parents, grandparents and great grandparents lost the traditions during the boarding school era. This is a message that needs to be delivered through our messengers, for the messengers. Water is Life. Take care of our precious resource. Chi-Miigwetch (Big-Thank You)

We will learn more about marine mammals of the Arctic and use our community's Festival of Tree program to bring this information to individuals and families in our communities. To do this, we selected a children's picture book that focused on Arctic Marine Mammals and displayed it along side a decorated tree. This book contained many resources for more information in an appealing way to all ages. We decorated the tree with hand crafted, eco-friendly Arctic marine mammals and landscapes.
