A quest is a step in your journey, such as learning about your history.
There are quests for every phase of the journey: Tlalpixke (Earth Guardian), Tlepixke (The Firekeeper), Apixke (The Water Protector), Yehyekanohnotsa (The Wind Talker), Sitlalnehnenki (The Star Walker) and Kitlapowa Ohtli (The Wayfinder). Elders guide us along the path we call the XINACH OHTLI (Pathway of Seeds).
THE SOCIAL CHALLENGE:
Indigenous youth face the highest rates of suicide among youth in North America.
You are a game designer collective recruited by an indigenous community to design a social impact game for youth that explores indigenous presence and create works of poetry as a pathway to healing. Your goal is to get youth to find ways to tell their stories (your stories) by promoting each other’s healing.
HOW TO ADVANCE ON THE XINACH OHTLI (Pathway of Seeds) QUESTS:
Create a team for the quest. Each of you should assume one of the roles described below.
1. Use the Codex Anawak Map to find the portals (QR Codes) to each of the first six quests.
2. Each image on the map is a clue to the location of each Quest Portal (QR Code).
3. At each location you will find the Quest Portal (QR Code) you need to access. Scan each portal QR Code to access the quest. Follow the quest by reading, listening or watching the quest.
4. After each quest you must post a picture of your team at the quest location on the google classroom stream to prove you have found it.
5. After completing all six quests, your seventh quest begins. Weave your own poem together combining verses or lines or concepts from each quest into your own unique poem to express your message to Indigenous youth struggling to heal.
6. Post your seventh quest online on the google classroom for each team member's name.
