Providence Students Party Prairie Style

Second-graders at Providence Christian School got a nineteenth century experience during the school’s Pioneer Day on April 7. The second grade event was the culmination of a year’s worth of history, music, and art study. Students, such as Ryan Bozman and Patrick Pierce (pictured above), sang folk songs, panned for gold at a gold rush station, pulled wool, and practiced shaving with lather and butter knives. Kudos to all the prairie girls and boys who participated in the event!

    What a fun idea! I’m sure these kids learned a lot about our American history.

    That little Harrison Heflin is a chip off the old block. Cute kids, great school.

    Wearing feathers isn’t racist, if it was, we’d all have to toss out the boas that we Parkies like to wear on special occasions.

    I applaud Providence for enlightening the students to Native America culture, especially in the park cities. I myself, is probably the only Native American (half Comanche/Anglo) in the park cities. And since my Great Great Grandfather, Quannah Parker, owned 75% of the state of Texas and sold many miles of land to the big Ranchers still going today (Waggoner Ranch). In the seventies, I recieved a lot of racial slurs because of the ingorance of our ways. And I will wear fur anytime (blackgamma, of course) as it is a symbol of pride in the culture.
