The Alaska Native Cultural Charter School (ANCCS) would like to send a huge Quyana to TCF for their continued support and dedication to the success of our Culture Week. During Culture Week, students at ANCCS spent a total of four days working with local artists from our community learning about many different Native art forms. During this time students learned how to make Yup’ik drums, Tlingit blankets, Athabascan earings, dream catchers, Yup’ik headdresses, Kuspuks, Alutiq paddles, beaded headbands, wooden masks and tradtional foods.

We are very grateful for the Education Project and the Journey to What Matters grants.

Dustin Newman & Tatiana PetticrewUnangax-regalia-3

We had Dustin Newman and Tatiana Petticrew share with our students the items that they made for our classrooms, Dustin made bentwood visors and Tatiana made Unangax regalia. The students were able to touch all the items and learned a little history about each. Dustin made the visors match each classroom animal and Tatiana made a girl and boy regalia item for each class.
