Kara Schwab is inviting all student-athlete alumni to a Talking Circle. Please read further for more details.

Attention Braves and Lady Braves

You are cordially invited to participate in a Talking Circle.

This discussion will be centered around your experience as a member of an athletic team at Sherman Indian High School.

All former student-athletes of Sherman Indian High School over the age of 18 are welcome!

These discussions will be used towards my doctoral pursuit from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro and used as research.

During the Talking Circles you will be asked questions regarding your experience as a student-athlete at Sherman Indian High School. Specifically, we will reflect and discuss the protective factors you encountered and how it affected your academic commitment and success.

These discussions will take place in the San Diego area this fall and last approximately 90 minutes.

A meal will be provided.

If you are interested, able to join us, or offer any suggestions and would like more detailed information, please email Kara Schwab at [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you!

I hope all is well with you and your family!

During the 1960s, national events brought more focus to the unequal treatments of minorities, including Native Americans. At Sherman Institute, students, parents, alumni and Native staff began to advocate for change, demanding more Native centered programming and parent involvement.

Today was another good day here at Sherman Indian Museum.
We had a visitor who was looking for any info on his 91 year old mother who attended Sherman in her teens. He found pictures of her in the 1948 and 1947 yearbooks. He was able to take a picture and send it to have his sister show her. He said it made her happy to see it and also see her best friend standing next to her.

Then we had a volunteer come and w**d whack the rest of the w**ds in the rose garden. It’s really Starting to look better. Soon it will be beautiful again thanks to so many volunteers from our community.
Thank you Guy and thank you Jeri for sending him.

Today Juanito watered our plants and picked some more ripe elderberries in the museum planters.

The native bees are enjoying the Woolley Blue Curl flowers.

We also did some research and filled requests while enjoying the day.
