Native Americans

This week in kindergarten, the kindergartners learned a little about Native Americans.  Ms. Esquerra is Native American and she taught the students.  She told them about her dress and what some of the things on it mean.  She taught them the respect Native Americans have for eagle feathers.  She then told the students a story about a coyote and a rooster and how the rooster brings up the sun.
