And that dream is to build & install 9 new, YOU -niversities
in each of the villages of the North Slope Region to give these children a modern workshop area to learn computers, photography and Inupiaq Arts & Crafts. Each of those “skills” will generate amazing amounts of money if taught the proper, simple way of marketing your new found skills.
“A community you-niversity “! it is…. for YOU
We do not intend to ask or seek for grants or any other normal avenues of financial assistance, or loan. We will do this ourselves, with our money !
The amounts of money we generate from photographs, Ivory, & Native arts & crafts is well known all throughout the regions of the Arctic. .
FOUR HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUTS!! – generating that type of money, .. .. just to give it all away !! this is our goal, our purpose, our vision.
These children have nothing, in the smaller villages to do. Barrow is well equpiped with the Illisagvik college and such, and even here in Barrow we have the exact same phrase, used everywhere, I am just being bored,
but I have a much easier better idea. I have proven it. .. .. with these four boys I raised by myself. they are experts in photography, electircal theory and installations, computer repair and trouble shooting, Extensive knowledge of all major graphics software using very high end programs, that are considered the standard in todays technology related world . 2d graphix and the powerful high end 3D programs are what these boys have learned over a deacde ago.
They make the “finest” Ivory bracelets and are very well known all over in the three villages we have lived in during the last 5 years.
Stay tuned for further developments of our “impossible dream” !
The City of Point Hope is (other villages also), constantly applying for ‘grants’. I have told ‘key’ people countless amounts of times. All you need is ten children, and you can teach them how to make ear-rings & bracelets and generate much more in a month than these grants produce in a year !!
We want to open a 20 room hotel here in Barrow. ALL of that money that this hotel generates will be given away to fund and keep open these 9 YOU-niversities.!!
Majik Imaje .. 4 boys.. .. .. “because we care” !!
Barrow is about to become the “Broadway” of the Arctic.. .. very soon.. .. Huge LED digital frames 44″ wide by any length !! Huge printed framed (back lit) posters will be adoned all over this village – to provide a ‘walking’ information tour using whaling photographs to illustrate this culture for all the many tens of thousands of tourists that arrive here every year.
We are doing this all out of own pocket(s). !! Two Mayors are all excited over our unique ideas, these boys are the talk of the town !!
So when one of FLOYDS’ friends in the court house , overhears, my sons applying for a restraining order against a person who keeps harrassing us.. FLOYD took that opportunity to twist it around and post it on city-data. As usual (yawn) he has it all backwards.
You would think, that after being caught in so many lies, ( I can list them all). he would change, but I have learned in sixty one years – people do not change – they intensify !!
I am blown away-by the tens of thousands of hits I am receiving from CD. I am going to find out how to contact the owners of this site.
