American Heritage Academy Camp Verde Celebrates Native American Week

Posted On: 2016-09-30 03:39 PM

American Heritage Academy Camp Verde had three events the week of Sept 26th to 30th to celebrate Native American Week. The week started with the "Warrior" dancers who are children and grandchildren of the Yavapai Apache people. They meet a few times a week after school at the culture center with a culture specialist to learn the dance. The dance they performed is done for protection against the threats of nature, such as bears and wild boar.

Festivities also included a traditional Apache Blessing, Don Decker playing the Apache Flute for the school, and a fry bread sale to benefit the school.
