Turtle Island Institute (TII) 

ancient knowledge
as the path to
a sustainable future



turtle island?
The name Turtle Island Institute (TII) is taken from the Gary Snyder poem and Native American story about the earth being the back of a swimming turtle - disrupt the natural processes and we all drown.

Another version of turtle island comes from "The Way of the Hopi" - the first time much of their oral tradition was ever written down. The Hopi's have an oral tradition of being a number of clans - some of whom stayed south, some went here or there. They basically remember crossing the Bering Strait, and then traveling down to South America. In their tradition, the turtle island is North America, with four arms a head and a tail. One arm is Baja, another the Bay Area peninsula, another is Florida, the other long island is Nova Scotia. The tail leads town to Central America, the head the Bering Strait.

our perspective
TII greatly respects the tales and cultural identities of indigenous peoples everywhere. By exchanging all kinds of knowledge - cultural, technological, spiritual, societal, etc. - every inhabitant of the planet will benefit. Future generations will have a better chance of inheriting an earth which can provide the same benefits that our generation have enjoyed and celebrated.

TII is best described as follows: A "virtual university" designed to develop interactive computer educational programs in sustainable development directed toward indigenous people in the Americas (Canada, U.S., Mexico, Central and South America, including the Caribbean and Costa Rica).

These programs, developed in cooperation with representatives of indigenous tribes, are planned to be disseminated through interactive video, pictures and text formats on the Internet. While focused toward indigenous people, the programs will be made available to schools and libraries everywhere.

Moving interactive educational formats will play an active role to "tell the story" of sustainable development projects such as: water reclamation, straw bale construction demonstrations, watershed restoration projects, agriculture projects, use of solar energy, construction of wetlands, hydrogen power, health and nutrition, sustainable community, etc. in a manner that is easily assimilated, entertaining and informative.

In addition, documentaries are planned to reveal how relationships between cultures and habitats promote biodiversity in regions and serve to maintain the balance of nature. Intended for dissemination through public broadcasting and other outlets, documentaries such as these aid in bridging cultural gaps and reveal how indigenous cultures contribute in many positive ways to the preservation and restoration of vital natural resources.

Working Groups include:

* Curriculum Development
* Grant-writing
* Multimedia Education
* Educational Ecotours
* TII Signal (newsletter) Publishing
* Products and Services
* Art and Literature
* Satellite Campus Development

We need your help to keep these groups active and productive!

Wooster Collective : The Return of Roadworth 




"I just wanted to fill you in a little bit on what's been happenin' with me lately. Most recently, I received a permit from the city of Montreal via the Quartier Epehemere, an abandoned steel foundry that was converted into an art gallery about four years ago, to make a bike path connecting a pre-existing bike path in Old Montreal to the gallery as part of an exhibition entitled "Debraye" that, lets just say, deals with the darker side (darker than what you see in car commercials at least) of "car culture." The idea was to make a "designer bike-path" that would reflect the neighbourhood by referencing aesthetic and historical elements within the area. Anyway, a couple of nights ago I set out with a group of friends to paint a bike path (a pretty funky bike path albeit) from Quartier Ephemere to de la Commune, a stretch of about a kilometer or so.

The sureal feeling of spray paiting the street with the aid of pilons provided by the City of Montreal while police cruisers passed unblinkingly by was heightened by the presence of a growing group of on-lookers who soon turned the event into a bit of a street party, complete with beer and pizza.

The court date for the 51 counts of mischief that I still face is scheduled for January 17th. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. Oh yeah, I'm going to Normandy,France in September to hit the streets there as part of a short film festival. Will let you know how it goes. Hope life is good, RW"
