Looks like this is a topic of few words! Still, my contribution:

Water Collection

Natural medicine

Cooking + Food storage

General Fitness (should come with the lifestyle, but people need to be prepared)

I assume hunting covers areas such as...tracking, "owl eyes", "racoon ears" and other such skills?

Are those from this site? http://www.natureskills.com/ Haven't seen those yet but I just found that web site today.
Hunting means stuff like tracking, using a bow(so I need to put archery as a subgroup) and cleaning the animal.

Tanning.
Farming.
Clothing maker.
Weaving.
Flint knapping if you'll be using traditional tools.  (Though I think this might have been decided against in earlier threads, due to the better efficiency of modern arrow heads/blades.)
Shoe making

Tanning as in tanning a hide? I am thinking it will be very difficult seeing as it requires certain chemicals and heat to make the hide tan. I think somebody should look through the history of how the people, of whatever place we decide on, lived and survived for so long. If Hawaii I am sure that there will be loads of information and you might still find people that you can speak to about living in the wilderness.

Native Americans were tanning hides for thousands of years before Europeans brought their methods over.  It's possible to do it without using chemicals.

Either way, you'll need clothing, and the easiest way to get a durable material would be the skins that you took from the animals you killed.  That's why they did it.

We need seriously learn about natural disasters and even prepare for them, if it is normal in that country, for example earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions(Hawaii is an example for volcanic activity and like Chile, Vanuatu, Japan is normal for earthquakes).

another thing is take care of environment, school for teaching kids 'If we need that'

I think it is better to choose a land where there are few natural hazards.

I guess that Na'vin can be very helpful for weapon crafting, at least.

Weapon crafting... Depends on what weapons do we want... I think Knives and maybe arrowheads (from the "iron" part) and then bows and arrows (from the wooden part). But what else do we need?

And by contribution:
Woodcrafting (Making things from wood. Little utilities or the whole buildings, jewelery or weapons...)
Swimming (Of course, I doubt, that here is anyone, who can't swim, but still. :D )

Hunting
a. Archery - I have a fiberglass bow (standard D-shape, no special hunting bow) with 4 practice arrows. I practice in my side yard when it's warm and no one's around.
b. Tracking
c. Stalking
d. Gutting and Cleaning
e. Trapping

Pottery

Fishing

Basket Weaving

Construction

Business

Natural medicine

Cooking
a.Water Collection
b.Food storage

General Fitness (I read this, and now I don't want eat for a few days. I reallllllllllly need to start working out.)

Farming

Making Clothing
a. Weaving - I'm working on 4444 weaving, or "strand" weaving. I'll eventually teach myself holstering and such with it.
b. Tanning
c. Shoe making

Flint Knapping


Plant and animal identification - +1 for Mammals

That's what I got. In school, our senior class is going through the process of college searching so we can plan an occupation for the rest of our lives. I don't want an occupation, I want a lifestyle, so this seems a lot easier to keep track of than such.

These are great ideas. I guess we should start to find or write guides for this. I am unable to find some on the net.

So, as your college seem to ask you this, what do you plan to do more specifically?

As in, towards the tribe, or what I'd actually go to college for?

For the tribe I'd say. You have said :

along with the list above where you have left several elements.  SO I thought you were planning to learn these skills or something.  :)

Basically I'm teaching myself odd skills, including weaving and archery. (Add guitar to that if it's considered 'odd') But, my current weave project for a new hair/dreadlock type weave will be 3-4 feet long with the 4444 pattern. I have 6-8 inches done with about 2 hours total time put in, and so far I haven't messed up. I'll scan/take some pictures soon and show them. But, my break started and I have a new source of income, so I can start buying materials. And, tomorrow after I get a headset, I'll have $50 left over, and I plan to get crafting junk with it. I'm going into plain weaving soon, which is used for blankets/silk/clothing, etc., just using yarn instead of thread. So, once I get it down on yarn, I'll move up to using a threadlike-wood or leather, to get into true durability and such.
