The discovery and examination of one of the oldest human remains found in the Americas confirms what Native people have known all along.
Fawn Youngbear-Tibbetts's insight:
“this expedition produced some of the most compelling evidence to date of a link between Paleoamericans, the first people to inhabit the Americas after the most recent ice age, and modern Native Americans.”
note the use of the Word Paleoamericans here, another attempt of Archaeologists to disconnect the remains to the Indigenous People of the Americas.. You can find out more about their twisting of terms if you read the full article (see page 3).. I have been saying this for years, but if we allow them to manipulate the language like this we will continue to have a difficult time in repatriating remains. Current laws state that remains only have to be given back to the direct descendants.. There are thousands upon thousands of remains yet to be repatriated because of terms Archaeologists use.
It’s a brave new world for education, particularly with the growing popularity of portable devices and flipped learning. Teacher and digital strategist Jane Basnett gives her finest tips on how a school can fully embrace the future.
The big thing to remember is that we are trying to connect the audience with the story first, and the brand second. No one wants to feel like they are being marketed or sold to. If we think back to when we were kids, stories were told to us so that we could learn from them – in school, by our parents, by our camp counselors, and others. Most of the time there was a lesson to be learned by the story. We listened to the story to understand the most important question – Why?
People still want to know the why, but today it’s more related to “why is this important to me at this moment?” A good visual story will help to answer that question still sitting in our heads. Visual storytelling should connect the audience – whomever or wherever that audience is – with the story that is being told and by whom. Visuals don’t need to be fancy to be effective. If we use tools like Excel, we have the ability to make a chart. Charts don’t need to be super creative or fancy to be effective. Still, we know that anything that you can create that helps the audience to understand the content better and faster is more effective.
If all these articles and experts are saying that we should introduce our kids to coding; I'm saying why not?
This summer I'm tossing up the idea of introducing this to my own kids and their neighborhood friends. We already tried Game Star Mechanic, and we loved it!
Many of these sites and programs are created and geared towards kids. I view it as an appropriate introduction to to anybody with "zero" understanding of the coding or game creation.
During the process of brainstorming my ideas, I've compiled what I believe to be the most popular sites, programs, links, and resources. I have yet to fully explore all of them, and will probably continue to update this list during the next few months.

All of us want to make it clear that this honor song was not a political stunt," Grey Cloud said on Facebook. "This was an opportunity to honor the hard work and courage shown by the Senators who voted against the tarsands pipeline, Tribal leaders, front line pipe line fighters and especially the courage, direction and support of our grandmothers."
The opening of a national historic site in Colorado helps restore to public memory one of the worst atrocities ever perpetrated on Native Americans
Fawn Youngbear-Tibbetts's insight:
"Sand Creek was the My Lai of its day, a war crime exposed by soldiers and condemned by the U.S. government. It fueled decades of war on the Great Plains. And yet, over time, the massacre receded from white memory, to the point where even locals were unaware of what had happened in their own backyard."

Fawn Youngbear-Tibbetts's insight:
Barry Lopez's National Book Award-winning classic study of the Far North is widely considered his masterpiece.Lopez offers a thorough examination of this obscure world-its terrain, its wildlife, its history of Eskimo natives and intrepid explorers who have arrived on their icy shores. But what turns this marvelous work of natural history into a breathtaking study of profound originality is his unique meditation on how the landscape can shape our imagination, desires, and dreams. Its prose as hauntingly pure as the land it describes, Arctic Dreams is nothing less than an indelible classic of modern literature. This exerpt is one I will be using for the IAS Institute this summer. "Story of Anaktuvuk Pass: At the Junction of Landscape and Narrative" So fitting in our Digital Storytelling Session this year.
