The Tribe Project is an ICT-based program for children. The main aim of this project is to promote a healthy behavior change towards increased energy efficiency in commercial buildings, through the participation in the pilot project of a mixed community group, integrated by ICT into the living and working environment. The project also helps to involve people at all levels of socio-economic development to create a better awareness of energy-saving options and promote their use. The program has many elements such as encouraging family and individual engagement, as well as group participation. It also encourages the participation of businesses, which can help to provide information on saving costs, encourage other businesses to participate, in order to drive the initiative forward.
This Tribal Project is developed by the Northwest Indian Center for Community Economic Development (NICCED), a nonprofit agency of the Northwest Indian College Board (NWICB), a Northwest Indian tribal member organization. They have developed a manual for adults (ages 18 years old and up) called “Indian Tribes: Creating a Healthy Self Image and Energy Efficiency”. This manual includes several case studies of how tribals have implemented several sustainable practices in their daily lives. This manual was designed to assist tribals in creating an improved sense of self and also improve their economic circumstances.
In this manual, three main sections are described: An Introduction to the Tribal Project, An Overview of the Community/ Tribe and Self Graphics/Articles. A brief introduction to the tribal project was prepared with the intention of preparing participants for a workshop on the same, which will be held by NICCED. The purpose of this introductory workshop is for the adults in attendance to get a better understanding of the goals of the project. At the end of this workshop, a manual for adults (a glossary of terms, objectives and activities is given) will be furnished to each participant. These contents include: An Introduction to the Tribal Project; An Overview of the Community/ Tribe; and Self Graphics/Articles.
The main content of the Manual for Adults described above pertains to the individuals in attendance. The second half of the manual contains articles related to living in the tribe and their daily life. It is subdivided into five parts: The History of the Apache Indians, The Role of Women in the Community, The Economy of the Apaches, and The Arts. It was found that when reading the articles, the individuals became more involved in the learning process, while at the same time learning new information. The fifth section of the manual for adults provided information about the art of eriberto oriol self graphics.
According to the research conducted by NICCED, the most common perception among people who have first been exposed to eriberto oriol native self graphics are that they resemble those of indigenous people from Central America. The uniqueness of tribal art lies in its vivid representational image of nature and the natural world. For this reason, many people associate the creation of the tribal art with the early man and his relationship with the earth. In addition, many people find it hard to relate the tribes’ art to their own personal experiences because of its similarity to images of animals. This may be due to the fact that the animals in the images of ancient tribes are similar to the ones that one may see around them.
With the information that has been derived from the many research projects and analysis conducted by NICCED, it was found that many people do not fully understand the importance of the hand drawings in tribal art. According to the research, people should view the drawings as a means to express themselves. The drawings help people portray their feelings and ideas in a meaningful way. Many people also found it interesting that the drawings are part of an oral tradition passed down within the tribe.
One of the main problems many people have when it comes to engaging in a tribal art project is the lack of information. Most of the information available on the internet is either incomplete or unreliable. The information that most people have access to are either Western or Eastern in origin. What’s more, most of the Western art is often based on the works of European artists. The lack of information also prevents many people from learning about the rich cultural history that the Native Americans have maintained for hundreds of years.
Fortunately, there are a number of online resources that can help people discover the rich cultural history that the Native Americans have maintained for centuries. These online resources enable people to access the artistic expression that the Native tribes have developed through the generations. The art of many tribes can also be purchased through reputable websites that provide authentic merchandise. By engaging in a tribe artwork project, individuals can not only learn more about the unique history of each tribe, but they can also display their artwork in their homes. For this reason, many people are eager to learn more about the history of their native tribes and to start displaying their artwork in their homes.
