The fourth graders from Open Window School were lying on the floor of the Great Hall, perfectly quiet except for the occasional yawn. They were not getting ready for a nap.
Suquamish weaver Peg Deam sat sideways on the edge of the stage in IslandWood’s Great Hall, one leg hanging off, the other on top, straight and draped with cedar fibers.
Throughout the week, my students and I explored the life cycle of salmon by discussing their habitat and developmental stages.
On Monday, October 8, students in the School Overnight Program (SOP) took part in a visit by Tlingit artist, dancer, and teacher Odin Lonning in celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
