A Special Visitor

We were very lucky to have Maria’s grandma come and share the traditions of her Kaw Indian Heritage. She shared the dressing of the tribes at their festivals and showed how they made many things and how much work is put into making the clothing, jewelry, and tools. It was fun to see Maria dress up in her Kaw clothes and then she dressed Owen up in boy clothes and showed the whole class how to dance to the beat of the Indian drums.

We finished up this fun visit with a real Native American Storyteller! Maria’s great Aunt shared stories from their tribe and told the students how each story and Native American tale taught a lesson.

It was a really fun and educational time!  Thank you ladies for sharing your heritage with us!
