        Trading Bows and Arrows for Laptops: Carbon and Culture

        Since Chief Almir first contacted Google five years ago, their partnership has flourished. The Surui have created a cultural map in Google Earth to preserve their knowledge of their territory including plants, animals, and historic sites. They are also using Android devices equiped with ODK (Open Data Kit) to monitor illegal logging and measure the biodiversity and carbon stocks of their forest. Support Materials include a lesson guide and student handout.
