Extra-Curricular Activities/Interests

 

I have been involved in many activities related to the school area. One of them was volunteer work with children. I taught the children to dance in various types of powwow dancing. I also taught them how to bead and make regalia’s. The children showed much interest in what I have taught them, So I decided to also teach some cultural and traditional backgrounds. My interests today are designing and making new regalia’s and clothes with native designs and beadwork.  I also teach people that want to learn how to make regalias and ask for their opinions for future ideas.
