We are very proud of John, Salena, and Dawson for leading the talking circles in the middle school and high school! All the best for another great year!

The School District of Black River Falls Board is proud to recognize the efforts of Salena LeMieux, John Dick, and Dawson McAndrews (not pictured) for generously donating their time and talents to provide exceptional enrichment opportunities to our students at the MS and the HS. Because of their efforts with the Talking Circles, students have the opportunity to work with some strong mentors and learn more about Ho-Chunk traditional cultural stories and to use those stories as a springboard for open dialogue into relevant life topics. This has been a goal of our partnership with the Ho-Chunk Nation Dept. of Education for several years, and these individuals made it happen!

The Talking Circles are open to both Native and Non-Native students. #tiGRRpride

This is great!

Native Stories: Books for tweens and teens by and about Indigenous peoples | School Library Journal

“Each year we are pleased to see more Native authors getting published. In addition to our recommendations here, we suggest that librarians and educators seek out the American Indian Library Association’s Youth Literature Award list, read critical reviews at American Indians in Children’s Literature , and explore interviews with Native writers, illustrators, and editors at Cynsations, a resource-filled website maintained by author Cynthia Leitich Smith (Muscogee Nation)”.
