Enemy Swim Day School Painting Fun!


Last updated 2/8/2021 at 10:42pm

The ESDS staff was given time to have a relaxing and fun painting afternoon. Rebecca Dargatz led the staff members step by step through the process of painting, "Our Grandmother's Prayers Are Always Protecting Us." It was a painting of a starry night, and several grandmothers huddle together around a big fire to offer prayers of protection for the Oyate. Each grandmother had her beautiful blanket of many colors surrounding her. During the painting activity, staff members finished the starry night background, took a break and had a snack from Subway. After enjoying the food and conversation, it was back to painting the fire and the grandmothers. This afternoon was given to the staff because educating remotely had been very stressful and this was a way to celebrate the return of our students back into the building and for all the hard work done by ESDS staff.
