On June 7, 2017, Sioux Valley High School held its annual Culture Camp for the youth of Sioux Valley grades 7-12. The day started out with Sioux Valley’s own Jace Pratt, a motivation and cultural speaker who delivered an opening talk with both passion and conviction with the hope that our youth would embrace our culture. Students then learned to put up a tipi, which led to a race between the boys and girl, with the girls taking an early lead, but the boys ended up with the win. The afternoon consisted of an assortment of activities, including lacrosse, archery, horseback riding, wagon rides, fried bannock making, moccasin games, beading and crafts. There was something for every youth to try and a little bit of learning for some new staff as well. Day 2 will have a new list of events and will start at approximately 9:00 am tomorrow morning.
