Powwow Power!

Native American Powwow

Learning about different cultures is important for children to experience in order to be tolerant of the differences.  I just coordinated a school wide pow-wow where everyone, from preschool to middle school students explore the world of Native Americans. It was a huge success!  The local newspaper, Observer and Eccentric, wrote a nice article about it.

It was a culmination of a month of study and coordination and the whole student body participated in it. The students studied different tribes and tradition, made artwork and were dressed as Native American’s for the naming ceremony.
