What do we do?
We support culture within the school district by working with the JOM program and being directly involved in the planning and activities of Native American Heritage Month in November and throughout the school year, including games, reading to younger students, crafts, and presentations. We go on field trips and leadership seminars. As a group, we create our own fundraisers in order to attend local Pow wows, Round Dances, and college visits. We provide community support as needed, volunteering for multiple community events.
It is our hope, through fundraising and other resources for eligible members to attend the National JOM Conference, National Unity Conference and Gathering of the Nations Pow Wow annually. It is also important that we do as much as we can to share our culture, traditions, and beliefs with our school district to encourage understanding, respect, and reduce misconceptions.
