Subject:Aboriginal Artist Presentation at Drake Elementary
Drake Elementary School was very fortunate to be able to have aboriginal artist Harold Littletent and his son Jarod visit and make a presentation to students on Friday October 17. They exhibited a large collection of outfits worn to various dance competitions and they explained how they were made and allowed several students to try them on. The outfits were jackets, dresses, and pants made of very elaborate, detailed, and colorful bead work and head dresses made of feathers and quills, all made by Harold and his family.
Students were very interested in the bead work and we are hoping that Harold and Jarod will be able to come back to our school and teach everyone how to make some of the beaded designs.
