It Takes A Nation

LIGHTS!  CAMERA!  ACTION!  WisDOT, in partnership with the WisDOT Inter-Tribal Task Force, held two youth media camps in 2017, which resulted in the creation of two short transportation safety Public Service Announces.

Two communities were selected, one in Milwaukee and one in Hertel.  Youth from the Indian Community School and the St. Croix Chippewa Community were brought together to collaborate on a unique project designed to expose Tribal youth to transportation safety and to design their own safety message.

With professional instruction from Frybread Production, a 100% Native American owned and operated media team, the students were provided training in creative development, audio and visual techniques including filming, lighting, production, dialog creation, acting and other aspects of videography including editing.

At the close of the one-day media camp, the students created their own message.

This project is an extension of the It Takes A Nation Tribal transportation safety campaign, which is designed to deliver culturally tailored safety information for and by Tribal communities.
