- What are the features of tribal life?
- What are the challenges faced by tribes?
- What is our responsibility toward the different tribal groups?
In the beginning of the exhibition, I had very different ideas about what I would do for my exhibition. I knew from the start that my topic would be on the tribes of Tanzania, mainly the Hadza. But my ideas on action changed greatly. In February, I wanted to somehow find a way to help the Hadzabe. By the end, I had changed my mind and decided to try to figure out what we could learn from the Hadza.
I have learned many skills during the PYPX. Some of these skills were to do with technology. After a week of making a slide show I learned about many more advanced techniques on Google Slides. For example:
Cropping images, Animation, Placing background images. I also learned a lot about how to produce a video. For my action, my dad and I made a video about what we can learn from the Hadzabe people. Our examples were squatting for rest instead of sitting or lying down, knowledge transfer (or learning things directly from experts near you), and healthy microbiomes.
I posted this video onto YouTube. Here’s the link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnI_9ez9b8Q
Bob Cofer said, So many cool things in this presentation, it must have been fun working on it. It looked like you had a real passion and leaarned a lot in the process. Keep up the good work.
Sandra Mills said, i thought your presentation was so interesting and loved your message that we should all learn from our elders.
Deborah Mills said, Townes, this is a superb presentation. I remember when we travelled to Arusha for our Exhibition retreat I sat next to you on the bus and you told me how keen you were to do your PYPX on the Hadzabe. My recommendation is always that you should be able to come up with a place to visit, a person to interview and have at least a tentative plan for action. I couldn’t see how you were going to do this. As always you surprised me by visiting Monduli, interviewing Mr. Emmanuel and his family and coming up with an entertaining and informative action. Your wonderful video was advertised in the school newsletter and I hope you get many more views. Well done Townes – what a great Exhibition!
