Patrick Willie is a local American Indian who Hoop Dances competitively. He was taught many past Title VI students how to hoop dance and currently helps our Title VI Parent Committee with regalia projects. He volunteered his time and talent to 27 different schools in honor of Native American Heritage Month in November 2017. Some of the schools he volunteered at were in Nebo School District, primarily at Elementary schools. He does not have his own transportation, so he biked (200 plus miles) to a majority of these presentations.
Congrats to Rose Quintana (Nebo School District/Title VI Alumni) for receiving a $10.000 grant from the Running Strong Organization to use towards the Nebo Title VI Program. We are so proud of you, and excited for the wonderful activities you have planned for Title VI Youth and Families! Here is the full list of 2018-2019 Dream Starter Receptions.
Last Thursday, students and families across Nebo School District gathered at Larsen Elementary to learn about Native American culture and history. This event included something for the whole family. For the adults and teens, featured guest speaker Julius Chavez captured the audience's attention with his knowledge and expertise about Native American origin stories and constellation stories. He performed several songs and explained the meaning behind those songs.

Many students were able to meet local legislatures and tribal leaders. Students were also fortunate enough to be able to see the "Go West" exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts at the University of Utah.
