Edmond Summer Camp

The American Indian Cultural Center & Museum was pleased to host the Edmond Public Schools Indian Education Program's Summer Camp students (under Director Sydna Yellowfish) for a day of activities held at the AICCM’s new “Visitor Center” on the site.

Activities included:
• Native Community Guests participated in an activity with the students (K-8) in the afternoon.  The “Community Guests” were from a variety of tribal affiliations in the state including Choctaw, Cheyenne, Creek, Euchee and Chickasaw.  An object-based learning activity focused on an “object” brought in by the Community Guests and the students were asked to pose questions about the objects to learn more about it and the guests.  At the end of the day, the students reported what they learned about the object and the community guest.

  • Speaker Dennis Peterson from the Spiro Mounds State Park and Historic Site conducted a presentation and sideshow on the Spiro Mounds.
  • A group tour of the “West Passage Tunnel” and the “Courtyard of Nations”
  • Photos and videos of the students
  • One of the highlights of the day was hearing what the kids suggested for future activities and programming at the site:  rock climbing, native storytelling, a gift shop, dances, sports, traditional crafts classes, to name just a few!

Oh my goodness! This is peferct timing! I was watching a Laura Roeder video the other day & she was talking about a WordPress plugin called Thank Me Later & it's similar except it actually emails each commenter every time they comment. You can limit the number of emails each address receives, but this seems so much more simple! I'm installing it now! Thanks for the tip! I'll let you know if all my stuff starts getting more hits!
