Students from St. Labre were able to attend the Morning Star Celebration pow wow at the John Carroll School in Bel Air, Maryland once again this year. This annual event began in 2001 and has grown to include more than 100 dancers and seven drum groups from across the country. Curtis Yarlott was quoted in an article from Indian Country Today as stating “The pow wow provides motivation for our students to continue to practice the traditions of their respective tribes. Students who participate in drumming and dancing (and maintain good behavior and grades) are eligible to travel to the pow wow every second or third year when we are able to take them.” The Morning Star pow wow initially began in order to raise funds for St. Labre Indian School and will continue on as long they are able. Thank you to all who attended and participated in this celebration of Native culture.
