It's Spring Social Dance Time!

ICS parents and families are invited to join us for a series of Haudenosaunee social dances to celebrate Spring and the arrival of warm winds! If you’re unfamiliar with traditional social dances of the Haudenosaunee, this is a wonderful opportunity to come watch and learn!

Monday, May 20, 2019 
3rd through 5th grade, 1:30 pm - 2:55 pm 
Social Dances will be held in the Gym 

Each social dance begins and ends with the Thanksgiving Address recognizing the life-sustaining gifts from the Creator.
Our students will do their very best to express gratitude to all of creation as they sing and dance. Everyone is encouraged to wear ribbon skirts, ribbons shirts or vests, moccasins and a big, bright smile! 

Of special note... the 4th-8th grade Oneida language and culture students have been working hard to prepare for these social dances and are particularly excited to introduce them for the very first time to our youngest ICS learners, the four-year-old kindergartner students. 

On behalf of our students and their teachers Ms. Kal^na Niko Lee Daniels, Ms. Renee Pfaller and Ms. Lori Faber, we hope to see you there with us on May 6, 17 and 20!

We sew together each Saturday at ICS from 9am to 3pm. We welcome the community to join us!
You can also sew at home and send us completed ribbon skirts, shirts or vests! We love donations!
Boys shirts and vests can be purchased and THEN the ribbons sewn on. We appreciate your help!
We've been meeting each Saturday morning and sewing together. We help one another, laugh, share stories and we enjoy a meal together as we sew. It's a wonderful time! We've done some great work but really need additional help! We have 42 more ribbon skirts to make and 96 more ribbon shirts or vests to finish by June 1st. Can you help us?

The size chart relays approximate sizes by grade and tells you how many items we need for our students. You can download a printable PDF here.
