THE COSMIC RHYTHM

CHILDREN'S INDIGENOUS S.T.E.A.M EDUCATION PROGRAM

Jamii is seeking donations to launch our Children’s Indigenous S.T.E.A.M Education Program, with the objective of teaching the children in our community science, technology, engineering, art, and math through Indigenous Music & Culture. The goal is to create a portable off-grid, safe, inclusive, personalized learning environment where our at risk students are able to engage and contribute based on their unique talents and abilities. Our program is based on the culture and wisdom of our Indigenous Ancestors, and provides a foundation for higher learning, essential life skills, and character development. Funding in the amount of $48,620 is requested for equipment, development, and operations.

STATEMENT OF NEED

Jamii works with children who have been determined to be at risk in their social and economic development for a variety of reasons including:

  • Coming from low-income single parent households
  • Underserved & impoverished communities
  • Struggling with learning disabilities, such as attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Economic and language-based difficulties

Indigenous Education Programs that serve this demographic are limited, and if these children are not given an opportunity they are, as studies1 show, more likely to:          

  • Have limited access to wealth & resources
  • Lack quality time, help and attention
  • Have health & behavioral issues
  • Become truant or drop out of school
  • Be suspended or expelled from school
  • Be arrested for a juvenile crime
  • Abuse drugs & alcohol
  • Have teen pregnancy

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The core values we focus on in this program are People Care, Earth Care and Fair Share

People Care: People Care is about taking care of self 1st, our lineage and then our community (in that order). The best way to accomplish this is through a healthy lifestyle. Some areas of focus in our program include:

  • Plant-Based Nutrition & Culinary Alchemy Education
  • Interactive Anatomy & Physiology Education
  • Indigenous Drumming & Dance
  • Moving Meditation
  • Kemetic Yoga
  • Capoeira (Brazilian Martial Arts)

Earth Care: Permaculture is the Indigenous science of working with the natural contours of the land, and providing services to ecosystems, all while being minimally invasive and resourceful. Not only does Permaculture teach us how to respect nature, its principles teach mutual respect, harmony and self accountability. Students will engage in the following:

  • Sacred Indigenous Science Education & Application (Universal Law, Physics, Permaculture, Astronomy and more)
  • Sustainable Off Grid Technology Education
  • Recycled Art Creation
  • Weekly Community Clean-Up Day

Fair Share: Fair Share addresses setting limits to consumption and reproduction, and the redistribution of surplus. For example: An Indigenous community that grows food makes sure that everyone has eaten. The surplus can then be sold outside of the community to reinvest in community resources. Whatever isn’t sold can then be given away. Some Fair Share activities students will participate in include:

  • Community Garden Volunteering
  • Jamii Market Vending & Volunteering
  • Food & Clothing Drives

GOALS & OBJECTIVES

The goal of our Children’s Indigenous S.T.E.A.M Education Program is to introduce at risk students to the same science, wisdom & culture that their Ancient Ancestors developed to map the stars, build pyramids, and create peaceful civilizations that lasted for thousands of years.

The main objectives include:

  • Awakening the inner wisdom in our students.
  • Providing representation and a culturally relevant curriculum.
  • Providing a measurable increase in focus and cooperation.
  • Equipping our students with the foundational skills to sucessfully respond to life’s challenges.
