Tamera Miyasato presented to students at the E.A.G.L.E Center and parents/guardians/custodians on Friday, Oct. 25 during Native American Week. Tamera asked these questions relative to cultural awareness, sensitivity, responsiveness and proficiency: Where and whom do I belong? What is our own cultural mindset and consciousness as we explore our own personal journey? Students also did a self-awareness activity. Pictured left to right are Autumn Lara, Tamera Miyasato, Michael Franzen, Leroya Blue Arm-Webb, Isiah Collins, Mona Miyasato, Tallon Howard.
