Indigenous Life Celebration

In November, the Indian Education department collaborates with the city of Albuquerque, First Nations, and other organizations to have a life celebration on a Saturday.

Winter Stories

Like many events in American Indian culture there is a proper time and place for all activities. Traditional storytelling is reserved for the winter months for many tribes. This was a practical choice given the fact that during the other season's, people were busy growing, gathering, and hunting food. It was in the winter, with the long dark evenings, the snow and wind blowing outside, that telling stories was a way to entertain and teach the children. Another reason is that many traditional stories contain animal characters. To be respectful, people waited until the winter when animals hibernate or become less active so they cannot hear themselves being talked about.  The Indian Education department coordinates a time for StoryTelling every year.

College and Career Fair

High school students can begin a career exploration by attending the annual College Career Fair in September.  Many colleges and careers set up tables for students and parents to visit and gather information.  The careers include branches of the military, construction, medical, cosmetology and many more.  It is NEVER too early to start planning so all high school grade levels are welcome.
