 REGALIA MAKING

Starting in January 2017 we will be hosting a Powwow Regalia making group open all Indian Education Students and we are strongly encouraging all parents to participate. Supplies and sewing machines will be provided at no cost. Our plan is to get together regularly in the High School Library outside of school hours and provide instruction on making regalia for both boys and girls. Our goal is to have the finished products ready to use at upcoming Spring Powwows.

SCHOOL POWWOW

We will be hosting a Warroad Public Schools Powwow this year in May 2017 and our plan is to seize this opportunity to make it as educational as possible. We plan to have the entire school population (approximately 1,100) in attendance as spectators plus invite all parents and grand parents. Our goal is to showcase our rich culture and share the basic teachings that make up the fabric of who we are as Indigenous People. Dancers will be invited from the surrounding area to share their educational and career accomplishments. The MC will interview each dancer to share that information with us all. Additional information will be provided at a later date.


STUDENT RECOGNITION

We plan to acknowledge the success of all Indian students in the following two areas:

1)    Academic and 2) Attendance A gift card plus a Certificate of Achievement will be given to all Indian students that show success in the two areas identified above. This acknowledgement will be done at an Indian Education Potluck Supper at the end of each trimester during the academic year.


GRADUATION

We plan to have Indian Culture Presence at the Warroad High School Graduation this year by inviting a spiritual advisor and a drum group to conduct an honor ceremony at the graduation convocation. Also we plan to honor our 14 Indian graduates at an Indian Education Potluck supper and gifting them all as our way of honoring their accomplishments.

Warroad Public Schools Indian Education has invited Wilfred Buck a Science Facilitator with the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre Inc. to visit our school. He is known as the "Star Guy" and travels to many schools with an inflatable planetarium and shares an Indigenous perspective of constellations.
