Just wanted to say...

Tstal Layon:
Hey guys.  It's Unil Txep.  Not sure if anyone out there remembers me.

In any case, just wanted to say that I am so glad you guys are still doing this.  I'll keep reading this, but not joining back up yet.

Ah, I've missed you all so much.

Feel free to ask all the question you want from one of the original founders of the tribe.  ;)

Tsmuktengan:
Kaltxì ma eylan welcome again!

Well, I arrived much later, but I try to organise and sort out all the work, and research you guys have done since all that time.

I have no idea of questions for you yet, except how you felt and why did you wanted to go back to nature initially.

Glad to see you are still following. I guess you have a lot of occupation (me as well). I make this roject evolve in order to suit both people who want to be permanent members and people who may be occasionally participating or visiting. So feel free to ask questions as well.

Our new site I try to complete is located at http://na.learnnavi.org/real-navi/ and evolving.

And yes, we do take a bit our time. Rushing won't help us succeed.  ;)

Well, initially the idea was to have an actual tribe, speaking and living like Na'vi.  We would homeschool our kids, have one waterproof-weatherproof building with a phone line, emergency advanced med supplies... etc.

I don't know how exactly that changed.  Once more people started pouring in, they started saying how that was a dumb idea, that it should be more like a summer camp, or a rotating camp.  I think for a while we split off into two groups.

I wanted to do it because of my daughter.  Because I've always wanted to live like that, out in the wild, and just never had the means before to do it.  Never had anyone else who had even thought about it before I met all the people here.  So yeah, I jumped at the idea!! We tried to get it organised, but people kept on flooding in, with ideas and opinions, and then most left within a week.  I'm glad you've kept it going!!!

No, seriously, you don't know how happy this makes me :)

Tsmuktengan:
Reading you, it looks like many people where exposing too many ideas in a very short time, but that the group had no direction. to make it simple, I will base myself on what you said.  :)

This is the basic idea. At least, living like the Na'vi can also be understood like living in a rather basic way, very close to nature, with clear notions of respect towards people and nature. It is also in the plans to learn and use the Na'vi language, as well as the local territory's language.

This depends on the legislation and if we really have the possibility to do this for instance. There is a topic about this in this section somewhere. For the rest, everything would be done to ensure both legal standing, safety, and communication with the outside even if an isolated area is chosen.

This entire Real-Na'vi Life Tribe is probably a dumb thing, certainly a crazy and ambitious project. Honestly, I don't mind much, this is kinda of a unique experience and I am not sacrificing my studies. Same for many people here.

There has been tons of discussions about the various availabilities and the wants of various people. There are two categories :

- Those who see no issue leaving things behind, caring for the family or not (still have the possibility to communicate), and would become permanent members.
- Those who are very likely to have some kind of occupation and that could not stay in a permanent way, but would still like to attempt the experience.

So the idea is to get this working with permanent members and non-permanent people. The idea is also allowing a wide variety of people of exchanging lifestyles and still being able to taste purely free and wild life in nature. I want to make this flexible and feasible for everyone.

There are still several people stalking the forums and reading topics in this section though, there might be some interest. ;)

Now, I just have a question...

Oh come now, you've seen kids these days.
I really would rather not have her grow up like that.
