Why are you interested in participating in the Symbolic Enactment of the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign?
Tell us about any relevant experience related to support for native rights and/or protecting the Earth?
How would you plan to educate yourself on the issues to be able to participate effectively?
How might you help spread the word to publicize the campaign (social media, internet, media, friends, nation, etc.)?
How would you use your participation in the enactment to support the Two Row Campaign in the months and years to come?
What relevant paddling/water experience do you bring to the event?
How would you plan to prepare/train to participate successfully in the paddling?
Do you have access to a suitable canoe or kayak for the trip? (List Specifics)
Are there people or a group you would like to paddle with as part of the campaign? If so, please list them. (Each person needs to apply individually.)
Do you have additional skills to share which would be useful to the campaign (medical, video, media, public relations, mechanical, event planning, musical, safety training, water safety, cooking, etc.)
Do you have access to other equipment which would be useful to the campaign (marine radio, video camera, extra paddling or camping supplies)?
We will reserve camping sites as part of the overall planning. Would you plan to camp with the group or arrange housing on your own? (If you stay separately, you'll need to be able to meet up with us well before departure each day for briefings.)
We estimate the cost of participation to be $30/day/person to cover food, camping and logistical support. Non-native ally participants are asked to contribute toward that cost. We will offer suggestions for fundraising and soliciting sponsors to help raise funds. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Do you think you can raise additional funds to support the campaign? If so, share your ideas.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
