The Texans meet a Native American

Mr. Hank Bloomer gave Atlas students an authentic perspective of the Native American in Texas as he put up a 14-foot Teepee, complete with bear skin rug and camp fire. Unfortunately due to the heat and an unbearably dry summer, we did not light the fire, but students learned about the construction and purpose of each part of the teepee.

Mr. Bloomer also demonstrated a number of authentic Native American relics, and students were even treated to a rain dance complete with full native dress by our very own Mrs. Duty. Students then came into the brand new kitchen at Atlas to sample some of the Native American Staple, including deer meat, if they were “brave” enough.

Thanks to Mrs. Duty and Mr. Bloomer for bringing history to life for Atlas students.
