Year 3 Powwow

Home » News » Year 3 Powwow

Dear Year 3 (and parents and grandparents),

What a great day! Well done to all of you for your enthusiasm, fantastic regalia and amazing cake creations!

The weather was kind to us as we celebrated the end of our busy year with a Native American Indian Powwow. We held a smudging ceremony in our camp, to bring us luck; burning sage and sharing our chosen chief names. We played traditional Native American children's games — the keeper of the fire and stick game; we read a traditional story and role played, sketched and took part in an end of year quiz; we enjoyed our lunch in the tepee (generously loaned to us) and were treated to some very tasty (and creative) snacks.

To end our day, we shared our study work books from the year and our iMovies.

It has been a truly lovely end of year celebration. Thanks to all of you for joining in and for parents and grandparents for joining us for our sharing time.

Last week, we learned about the life of Chief Sitting Bull and wrote letters to the President of the United States to ask for his help, after our tribe was treated badly (in the 1850s). We decided to send our letters to President Obama! Last night, Miss Lake discovered that the first lady, Michelle Obama, had recently held a Tribal Youth gathering (Gen- I) and addressed young Native American Indians. She delivered a very powerful speech, thanking them for their contribution to American History and outlining plans to support them in securing a good education and helping them to protect their traditional way of life. It seems our letters were well timed and we are very hopeful of a response from The White House...and maybe even President Obama himself!

Study work books will be sent home towards the end of the week. If you could send your children in with a suitable bag, it will ensure books come home in one piece!

The photos here are just a sample of those taken and I will do my best to make sure a photo is included in this term's study work book. I am also hopeful that children's iMovies will be transferred to discs and included so that they can be enjoyed again at home.

Many thanks and well done again everyone.

Miss Lake (also known as Chief Falling Rain!).
