Celebrating Native American Heritage Month

In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, students at Lincoln Elementary were able to watch several Native American dances, including a performance by one of their school’s teachers, Patricia John.

“We dance to make other people happy and share a message,” John told students before one of the dances.

“The hoop dance relates to the circle, each of us all created equal in this sacred circle, which represents our world. It tells a story with hoops creating a flower, bee, and an eagle as it soars across the sky.”
