Native American cultural trunk exhibit

Native American Heritage Month is celebrated each year in November, and this year Saint Peter Public School’s Native American Parent Advisory Committee is once again providing a “Cultural Trunk” exhibit, which recently made its debut this year at South Elementary. The exhibit will eventually be on display in the other three main buildings (North Elementary, Saint Peter Middle School, and Saint Peter High School).

Each year, the trunk provides a variety of pieces that focus on Native American Culture surrounding the Ojibwe, Dakota, and Navajo tribes. Among the items on display with the large cedar trunk include several authentic and replicated articles of clothing, a loom (used to weave cloth and tapestry), a sacred Eagle feather display, a dream catcher, and models of birch bark canoes.

Shown above and below are some photos from Mrs. Powell's and Mrs. Hartfiel's class visits to view the cultural trunk. For more information on the SPPS Native American Parent Advisory Committee please click HERE
