Gavin White, Hilldale senior and resident of the Native American Student Association, welcomes students to the assembly.

The Hilldale High School Native American Student Association recently celebrated Native American Heritage month with an assembly to honor their native ancestry.

“This has become an annual event,” said Tera Shows, NASA sponsor. “The NASA club plans the assembly and enjoys getting to share who they are with the student body.”

Robert Lewis, Cherokee storyteller, told stories of Cherokee culture using Hilldale students acting as story characters

“I thought the stories were pretty funny,” said Sara Lanning, a junior at Hilldale High School and secretary of NASA.

In addition to storytelling, Hilldale hosted students from Sequoyah High School, who performed a dance exhibition and shared traditional music. Choogie Kingfisher, cultural coordinator with the Cherokee Nation, served as the assembly emcee.

This is the third year for Hilldale to have a Native American Student Association. The group has more than 30 members and is made up from students representing five different tribes. They compete in the Oklahoma Indian and Muscogee Creek Challenge Bowls and participate in cultural learning events throughout the year.
