District Wide Pow-wow

An annual event which provides every school within the Shepherd and Mt. Pleasant school district to bring one entire grade level to a traditional Pow-Wow. Along with the drumming and dancing, we provide each group an opportunity to attend one of four workshops which have included storytelling, history, language, and crafts. Students are also given a taste of Native foods while watching and participating in the dancing. Last year this event hosted approximately 2,000 students from the area schools. It is important to note that we highlight our own students as dancers and workers for this event.
