Students share knowledge through stories at Native American Awareness Week

LEWISTON, ID - We continue our coverage on the 26th annual Native American Awareness Week at LCSC.

The events kicked off early Thursday morning, with Native American students sharing stories about their cultures and the impact storytelling played within their family. A panel of eight students shared intimate details about how storytelling and culture go hand in hand.

"Growing up my mom taught me all she could about Nez Perce culture and about who I was and where I came from," said LCSC student Sarah Hennessey. "But being only one person, there were certain things that fell by the waste side and stories happened to be one of them."

The last activity for the public to participate in is Friday night. The annual Pow Wow is free of charge, and starts at 7 p.m. inside the Activity Center.
