Something from our USD259 friends...way to go students!

We are so grateful our students had the opportunity to participate in a hoop dance clinic led by champion hoop dancers Meredith Schramm and Meredith Lam the night before our Annual School’s Out Powwow!
These amazing talented ladies flew in that day and spent the evening making hoops for students then dividing them into two age groups and taught them the basics of hoop dancing.
We’re so impressed with how quickly the students picked it up in so little time and we were proud to see them participate with Meredith and Meredith during the powwow. 😉 They did a fantastic job!

What a weekend to remember! 🤗🙏🏼

Sivan Alyra Rose of the San Carlos Apache tribe is the first native woman to have a lead role in a Netflix series. Rose was modeling at the SWAIA - Santa Fe Indian Market when she received a business card from casting director Rene Hanes. Rose got to work alongside Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn in the new series "Chambers" which premieres April 28th.

Rose plays Sasha Yazzie, a 17-year-old Navajo/Mexico teen who receives a donor heart and begins to feel a darkness inside of her. "Chambers" is a supernatural horror film where Yazzie is obsessed with the death of her organ donor after receiving her heart. "Chambers" was filmed in New Mexico and is based on a fictional Arizona town.

Richard Zane Smith (Wyandot) works in the ancient Southwestern Anasazi style referred to as corrugated ware. He has been inspired by shards of corrugated pottery hundreds of years old that at first look, could be mistaken for a finely woven basket. He creates his works of art from tiny hand rolled coils of native clay. Besides classic Southwestern shapes, Richard has developed his own style of laying the coils in rippling forms which results in unconventional contours. Join us to be inspired by this artist and his works of art.
