Story at Anaktuvuk Pass | Harper's Magazine

Story at Anaktuvuk Pass | Harper's Magazine | Indigenous Arts and Sciences | Scoop.it
Harper's Magazine, the oldest general-interest monthly in America, explores the issues that drive our national conversation, through long-form narrative journalism and essays, and such celebrated features as the iconic Harper's Index.
Fawn Youngbear-Tibbetts's insight:

Arctic Dreams,

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.

Robert DesJarlait's curator insight, April 28, 2013 11:01 AM

"Another part of the problem is that there are many people claiming to be “decolonized” or who are “traditional” or who are “not as colonized” as others and they can often act as gatekeepers against legitimate Indigenous interest in returing to thier cultural traditions. Or worse, as “culture cops” who take the beauty of our cultures and deface it to claim power over others and to defend their own colonization by placing their actions as justifiable and right during times of widespread wrongs."

WATCH: The Water Footprint Of A T-Shirt

WATCH: The Water Footprint Of A T-Shirt | Indigenous Arts and Sciences | Scoop.it
Do you know the environmental impact of the shirt on your back? This new video from World Wildlife Fund and National Geographic’s “Make Each Choice Count” series reveals the environmental effects of textile production.

Even if a t-shirt is made from an animal-free, all-natural material like cotton, there are still environmental consequences. According to Waterfootprint.org, cotton farming is the largest consumer of water in the apparel supply chain, and is used in40 percent of all clothing worldwide, reports The Guardian. Since it takes about 2,700 liters of water to make just one t-shirt, as the video explains, that means an inordinate amount of the world’s clean water is being concentrated in the textile industry. With accessible, clean water amounting to less than 1 percent of the world’s water supply, this resource is both valuable and finite.

The good news is that great strides are being made to reduce cotton's water footprint. Through the Better Cotton Initiative, the World Wildlife Fund has helped 75,000 farmers reduce their water use by 39 percent while increasing profits by 11 percent. In addition, major textile brands are looking towards more eco-friendly cotton production.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, February 24, 2013 9:39 AM

I didn't know cotton farming was such a heavy water user.  Reducing the water requirement helps, but using renewable energy to make more clean water could take care of the rest of the need.  

 

However, we should probably develop more of the alternative natural fibers (http://www.naturalfibres2009.org/en/fibres/index.html), including Hemp, Flax, Coir, Jute, Ramie, and Sisal, and more plants that require processing (http://www.spin-knit-dye.com/natural-fibers.html) including rayons, viscose, bamboo, seaweed, soy, corn and tencel, as well as renewable animal coats including Llama, Alpaca (http://www.splitrockllamas.com/llama_and_alpaca_fiber.htm

Vicuna, Mohair, Angora, Camel, and Cashmere (http://info.fabrics.net/fabric-facts/wool/), and don't forget Silk (http://www.spin-knit-dye.com/silk-fiber.html).

Tribal Trust - The treaties is not a gift, or special interests, they are a core responsibility of trust and agreement.

Tribal Trust - The treaties is not a gift, or special interests, they are a core responsibility of trust and agreement. | Indigenous Arts and Sciences | Scoop.it

The Fish and Wildlife Service's Midwest Region recently developed this video as a tool to help our employees better understand our trust responsibilities as a federal agency for working with Indian Tribes.

A unique relationship exists between Native American Tribes and the United States Government; and, this relationship has important implications for the Service and the work that we do.

"This video is the newest tool developed to help us all better understand what our responsibilities are, how this applies to the work we do, and how we can work together to meet our shared goals," said Midwest Regional Director, Tom Melius. "Effectively working with Tribes is a priority for our Region and presents a tremendous conservation partnership opportunity".

Many individuals, including many of our Tribal partners, Service employees, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and our regional Office of the Solicitor contributed to producing the video. We hope it will be a valuable resource not only for our employees but also for our Tribal partners and others who are interested in learning more about the Federal trust responsibility to Indian Tribes.

More information on our work with Tribes is available on our Partnerships with Native Americans website at: http://www.fws.gov/midwest/Tribal

The treaties is not a gift, privilege or special interests, they are a core responsibility of trust, promise and agreement; its a duty and obligation.

How 7 Education Technology Platforms Have Changed How We Learn

Educational Radiotelevision Greece's curator insight, April 26, 2013 11:51 AM

Education technology has changed what’s possible in learning.

 

No longer are students confined to desks, textbooks, or even classrooms or schools. Today, a student has at least the potential for access to apps, an incredible catalogue of videos, podcasts, learning simulations, digital communities and so much more, all through a simple internet connection.

 

The following 7 educational technology platforms are good representatives of some of these changes, and the chart above is a snapshot of how exactly they’ve changed what’s possible in learning, from new sources of data to the potential for a global audience.

 

1. MOOCs

2. Skillbuilder websites

3. Blackboard Learn

4. Skype in the Classroom

5. Khan Academy

6. YouTube Edu

7. iTunesU

Resources and Links to Teach Kids Coding by Gary Feltman | Educational Technology and Professional Development

Resources and Links to Teach Kids Coding by Gary Feltman | Educational Technology and Professional Development | Indigenous Arts and Sciences | Scoop.it

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.
