    explain them.
    7. A slide that introduces human geography
    8. Slides with pictures and audio or video clips that show examples of the traditional indigenous cultures of your islands. This will include examples of traditions, language, customs, religion, dress, food, subsistence, transportation, art, music, etc.) You will need to have an explanation for each - include this in your notes.
    ...
    10. A few (older) pictures and a general summary - short - of the history of the indigenous people. You will need to explain this.
    REMEMBER - ALL SLIDES SHOULD HAVE AN EXPLANATION THAT YOU GIVE. YOU CAN PUT THESE IN THE NOTES SECTION AND READ THEM. THEY CANNOT BE COPIED - THEY NEED TO BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS. IF YOU GET UP AND PRESENT A SLIDE SHOW AND I HEAR YOU READING SOMETHING YOU'VE COPIED, I WILL STOP YOUR PRESENTATION.
    YOU WILL NEED TO BE FINISHED WITH THESE BY THIS FRIDAY THE 16TH - YOU'LL BE PRESENTING THEM NEXT TUESDAY DURING OUR FINALS CLASS
