Gathering of Nations

Welcome to the Native American Community Academy student project sponsored by The Gathering of Nations project on micro-activism, empowered by The Golden Opportunity! We want to see what can happen when students are given a small amount of money and a camera. We want to see how students choose to take small-scale actions and how those actions ripple out across their community and the world. We believe this movement can change the world one micro-act at a time!

Sponsored by The Golden Opportunity & The Gathering of Nations:
  1. 1) Create an account (see register link above) including your Flip serial number...
  2. 2) Come up with a micro-act idea and post below...
  3. 3) Film a video clip of your idea and attach it to your idea page...
  4. 4) Implement, video and load your completed micro-act for all to see!
