We recently hosted an art day at our Church building. Jan Whitefoot, a local artist, led the event and had a variety of crafts for the children: painting, making Native dance sticks, coloring, and beading. It was great to have her incorporate Native artwork into our kids’ lives, especially as many struggle with identity. We had 33 children and they LOVED it and all of them were asking when we could do it again.
We have scheduled another art day with Jan in May, and hope to work with her on a regular basis. These art events are great for the kids and the community.
