Member Price: 100
Deadline to Register: 11:59 pm on June 14
Instructor: Almeta Whitis
Age Group: 10-13

Our environment is vital to our very existence. Indigenous Peoples have known and passed on this important fact—we are neither separate from nor superior to Mother Nature; rather, we’re one tiny yet pivotal part of a vast picture. In this camp we will read, research, write about, and discuss the ways in which people and systems of power have impacted our Earth, and we’ll examine the interconnectedness between ourselves and other living and nonliving things. Linking storytelling and science with history and global cultural traditions, we will examine two questions that human beings have asked ever since we first began walking upright: “What is our place in the universe? What are our shared responsibilities as a vital part of Mother Earth’s ‘Circle of Life’?”
