Second Graders Welcome an Amazing Visitor

Second graders had a special visitor as part of their Wit and Wisdom module.  

Tylar Melfi is a descendant of the Deer Clan and Erie/Seneca and Kiowa tribes from the Salamanca, New York Senecas.  He stopped by the APC classrooms to talk about Native American culture and give the students a chance for some hands-on learning.

Students touched some animal furs and even got to take part in a traditional dance!  

The Seneca were the largest of six Native American nations.  Today the Seneca Nation has a total enrolled population of over 8,000 citizens.
