Culture/Social Science
 
PowWow
Grades Pre-K2-Pre-K4 (45min-1 hour), K-5 (1½ hours)
An Experience with Native American culture! A unique opportunity for students to learn Native American custom, dance and song by actually doing them in their own classroom! We turn your students into stomping braves and "light as a feather" maidens! Feathers fly everywhere as the young Indians dance authentic Native American dances within the ceremonial circle. What better way to learn about the "First Americans" than to join in an authentic, simulated pow-wow. We will provide all they need to "look the part". When we gather at the outdoor site, young braves will be prepared to take part in the Grass or the Deer Dance, while the maidens will be prepared for the Fancy Shawl or Basket Dance. Original Native American chants and stories will be sung and shared long after we are gone. So prepare your tepee, practice your dance steps and rattle our phone with your request for exciting Indian culture. More...
