Spend the day with a Tanzanian tribe in Africa. Its purpose: daily “hunt“ for dinner. When Doug visited Tanzania a second time, he was invited to join the daily hunt. With permission, he took amazing video while he accompanied a dozen members of the local tribe. One participant in Doug’s previous RECCS U class said, “The videos & stories he shared were a once-in-lifetime experience - for him & for us.” Doug’s videos, still photos, and some recorded music are all based on his extraordinary experiences in this eastern African country. Narrated live, Doug’s first video focuses on a Jeep trip in the Serengeti watching the migration of elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, and other wildlife. While on that trip, Doug and his wife also visited a Maasai tribe. You’ll watch tribe members living their traditional semi-nomadic lifestyle. Later he returned to Tanzania to teach students in the local school for two weeks. In class he shares additional full color video, film, photos & music — showing African students producing art in their school and examples of their projects. It was on this trip that he joined a daily “hunt.” Biography: Travel is one of Doug’s life pursuits in retirement. In another of his fascinating RECCS U classes, he shared experiences & artifacts obtained while teaching two years on the Navajo Nation early in his career. He has a diverse background as superintendent, assistant principal at CCSD’s Sunrise Elementary, principal at Gilpin Co. School, and teacher in regular, special education & art classrooms.
