Veterans Powwow teaches Native American students about their cultural heritage
Through dances, songs and language, Native American students are learning about their cultural heritage. One event that brings together the students and their elders is the annual Veterans Powwow. The Eastside Native American Education Program (ENAEP) hosted the 11th annual event on October 14 at Juanita High School. Students make gifts for the veterans while learning Native traditions. The ENAEP is a federally-funded program that serves Native students in the Lake Washington, Bellevue, and Northshore school districts in grades K-12.
