A lower elementary class in Lexington Montessori School chose to engage the school community and ask that everyone recycle devices that were no longer being used. The class spoke to parents, staff and students about the issues of coltan mining. Groups made signs and drop boxes, some took time to speak to each and every class and others manned collection areas. The class chose one day where everyone could easily drop their devices before and after school during drop off and pick up. An email was sent to the school community so that everyone was aware of the recycling day.

This project is meant to kick off a service learning/ social justice initiative. This funding will allow us to hold a community meeting of interested parties to engage in a conversation about how to best engage students in understanding the community where they go to school, it's significant history and there role as citizens of that community. This meeting will help to build community awareness and buy-in for the project as well as be a means to gather individuals who already are willing to contribute time and talent to the project.

Our class examined some of the key issues impeding quality of life and progress on the reservation. We narrowed them down to three main points: sense of hopelessness, poverty, and alcoholism. We conceived a plan to end tribal corruption and more fairly distribute revenues by limiting each individual's term on the tribal council to one year. Meetings and policies should be openly shared, along with agendas and budgets. We propose to diminish poverty and unemployment by transforming Pine Ridge to a center for cultural learning, horse activities and conservation, and indigenous and ecologically inspired tourism. We support the concept of shaman inspired and supported alcohol treatments, in combination with modern rehabilitation techniques. We believe that Lakota Sioux should step up and take a leadership role in environmental stewardship and bison and wolf conservation as their ancestors did.
