"THE SUNKA WAKAN Transformations Horse Camp"
- June 11 - 13
Students participated in the healing (spiritual, physical and emotional and mental) through horse nation cultural values while participating in a Native American horse mask ceremony. Students were taught the Seven Teachings of the Ojibwe Anishinaabe and Dakota values.
Sunka Wakan Mission Statement: Through the horse nation, Sunka Wakan Transformations will empower, heal, and reconnect Native Youth to our traditional ways of healing.
The American Indian Parent Advisory Council (AIPAC) is led by parents/guardians and school district advisors. The goal is to ensure that every American Indian student has equitable access to programs that are specifically designed to meet their unique educational or cultural academic needs.
This council is also guided/funded through a Minnesota Department of Education grant.
With questions, please email or call council advisors.
