WISDOM OF THE ELDERBERRY FARM

Image_202011220821

The Native American nonprofit, Wisdom of the Elderberry Farm, has a group of film and video clips that need to be organized for use in our Native American curriculum. This is a virtual opportunity so it is a COVID-19 safe opportunity. If you have ever worked with media files, this is a wonderful opportunity to help us catalog our collection and organize it so files can easily be found and added to future curriculum lesson plans. These recordings include messages of wisdom and knowledge from Native American elders, cultural leaders and educators who share information about Traditional Ecological Knowledge. The time you spend working on our tasks will be intellectually rewarding and culturally rich. Please contact Rose at rose@elderberrywisdom.org
