2nd Annual Frybread Event!

The Native Education Program held the 2nd Annual Frybread Event just before Spring Break! This awesome virtual event took place on Zoom and was a Live and Interactive Event for all High School Native Clubs! We learned some interesting facts about the subject and yup you guessed it made that greasy crispy delight Frybread! Students met fellow Natives from the Native Clubs around the district and put their Frybread skills to the test! Some call it Bannock Bread, but out West we call it Frybread! It was mmmmm good times!

High school students are encouraged to join their High Schools Native Club on Canvas.

Links to each high school Native club are below.

Native Clubs are fully supported by the Native Education Program, it is one of the few if not the only affinity group that has this level of departmental district support. The idea of Native Clubs as a district wide network came into being with the growing need to connect with our high schoolers and NEP saw the opportunity to use this network to bridge our community, and foster a sense of belonging for our students. While some Native Clubs have been slow in growing and catching on, it is a new approach and we’re aware that these things take time. We have done most of the footwork to avail Native Clubs in every High School, we have identified active advisors and give them tools to help foster the growth of their individual Native Clubs. While Canvas is home base for announcements and other communications, in-person meetings are taking place. If you would like to get involved with your Native Club, send a message to Ché Finch on the Canvas for your schools Native Club and he can answer any questions you might have.
