Those words are embraced when our 4th graders take over the cafeteria later this week for our annual Native American Powwow.
Picture a grand entrance where students carry flags that represent the characteristics of their class, and wear regalia that reflects their heritage and personality, then share music, drumming, dancing, poetry, and fables. That's Lafayette's Native American Powwow!
Families also enjoy a museum of life story skins, family totems, animal spirit masks, and kachinas that teach our school rule of "BE KIND." In true arts integration style, students demonstrate the tradition of Lacrosse in a video made in P.E. for our special day. Finally, there is a chance to experience sand painting, make a "talking feather," add to their regalia with a beaded bracelet, or try a museum scavenger hunt. So many ways to celebrate Native American culture through the ARTS!
