On Friday, the Nebo School District Title VI Office of Indian Education came to speak to Mrs. Rowley's, Mr. Cosgrove's, and Mr. Garcia's US History classes. Analysa Allison and Natalie Billie shared how Indigenous Americans dressed historically and contemporarily, and they told us about Powwows. Shoshana Begay taught us about Navajo storytelling, the Honeeshgish (or fire poker), and how to do an Indigenous American round dance. Finally, Eileen Quintana told us about Navajo clans, spoke some Navajo, and told us about various foods, medicines, and traditions that come from the Indigenous Americans.
We are so grateful that Analysa, Natalie, Shoshana, and Eileen came to MJHS to teach us more about their cultures!
