Dreamstarter Ruben Zendejas shares photos & videos from his workshops
12/2/16 in Provo, UT under Dreamstarter
This has been a great 2016! We have been able to do a lot with our youth and the community. It started off this summer with a really successful drum making clinic along with our summer school program, but things really got going as the new school year kicked off. We had a great back to school event and were able to provide a lot of many needed school supplies and backpacks for our native youth. Over this first semester of school we have had a lot great participation and excitement from the kids and the community. With dance classes every week and various clinics and workshops, from dancing, drumming, singing, moccasin making, bead working and more have kept us busy! We have had a blast this year. And teachers, kids, and families have learned a lot and had fun in the process. As we get ready for our Christmas party, we can’t wait for the upcoming activities that 2017 will bring, all in preparation for our big Pow Wow in April. Everything has been going great and we can’t wait for more to come!
