OPS Fourth-Graders Attend Annual Native American Education Days

Nearly 4,200 OPS fourth-grade students had the opportunity to learn about Native American culture during the eighth annual Dreams of Eagles Native American/Indian Education Days held at the Metropolitan Community College Fort Omaha campus in mid-September.

Elders and tribal members from the Ponca, Santee Sioux, Yankton Sioux, Winnebago/Ho Chunk, Omaha, Cheyenne River Sioux, and Rosebud Sioux tribes will provide perspectives on urban and reservation life. Faculty from Sinte Gleska University, one of the oldest tribally controlled colleges in the country, will also present information. More than 40 Native American artists and experts will share facts and stories about Native American culture and allow teachers and students to interview them. Learning station displays will include: leather, moccasins, jewelry, paintings, clothing, herbs and medicines, dance, language and clothing. Four tipis will also be on display, representing four tribes native to Nebraska: Winnebago, Sioux, Omaha and Ponca.
