Ice Worlds

Reestablishing the Long Leaf Pine Forest

Ice Worlds is a unique storytelling project that encourages tribal youth to explore their community’s relationship to Mother Earth. Funded by the National Science Foundation, teens from four Native American nations, including the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, interviewed elders, family, and community members about projects that highlight the preservation and conservation of natural resources. In this video, Poarch descendant Alex Bowen, age 15, explores the commitment by the Poarch Band to help reestablish the Long Leaf Pine Forest.
