The experiences are held in rain and sunshine, mountains and forests, river waters and waterfall, oceans and seas where the children get to experience all possible flavours of nature. Experiences are conducted in the outskirts of Mumbai in locations like Karjat, Pali, Kamshet, Kolad, Palghar also giving the young minds, a glimpse of beautiful local Indian cultures. We do fun activities like - stick building, rock stacking, journey Stick, Organic farming, Forest art & games garland making, participating in farming, cooking and cleaning; adventurous stuff like trekking, rock climbing, river swimming etc. Participants are encouraged to record their experiences the old-school way for Children of Tribe journals; Based on modern and slightly worrying truth that the city kids learn to walk on even, concrete and carpeted surfaces. But when they are eventually faced with an uneven surface, they will be unwillingly out into danger as they do not know how to use the space and how to walk. With Children of Tribe, my wish is to feed onto a child’s innate need for risk but with reasonable risk in order to prevent them finding greater risks for themselves at later stages of life. The other driving principle of Children of Tribe experiences is Sustainable thinking & sustainable living. These experiences are steeped in No Plastic; Consume Less; Give Back concepts. So, Children of Tribe provides experiences which are fun in an unplugged way! Just for a few hours, say bye bye to ‘gadgets & e-play’ instead, get your hands dirty in mud.
The goal is to create fundraising events for the Jane Goodall Institute, power-points for teachers to use to educate their students, and to tell at least 100 people about my project so more people can be aware of its goal! I will mostly spread the word through family, friends, and the local schools in my area. Though, if my project starts to take off, I will probably go online in order to reach a larger group of people. To make an even greater impact, in order to save everything I, and all nature lovers, care about.
COMBATING TRADE IN AFRICAN PANGOLIN IN LAGOS STATE NIGERIA THROUGH CONSERVATION EDUCATION CLUBS IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS

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 are talking with professionals at the University of MI to see what are the possible ways that we can take initiative.
We will do this by clearing out an invasive specious in a small area in the park.
Our project will create shelter, food and give a water source to the bird population.
The project will create a discussion about the season, changes that happen during that season, how animals adapt, and how people adapt. The seasonal scene will ignite a creative response that the students will write and illustrate creating a seasonal class book.
Our project uses handkerchiefs as a unique tool to tell the world about the critical issue of deforestation. We use our project to communicate widely, but also to raise money for grassroots organizations (mostly indigenous) that are on the ground in places where forests (especially peat land forests) and the creatures that live in them are threatened. We raise money by partnering with local businesses that advertise on tourist maps we print on handkerchiefs. We also raise money through the sale of these handkerchiefs.
The Impact of Marine Mammals on the Arctic, Indigenous Communities and the Balance of Our Global Environment
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.
