According to Program Educator Billie Spoonhunter, the traditional Native design stencils were provided by the Cent$ible Nutrition Program, with some help from the Wyoming Department of Health on all other stencils. Not only did the stencils make some pretty cool designs, they were also used to make playable sidewalk games.

“I would like to give a huge shout out to the St. Stephens Indian School staff, parents, Centsible Nutrition, and Northern Arapaho Council for making this event possible,” stated Principal Greg Juneau, who also helped organize the event with Spoonhunter and Superintendent Frank No Runner.

“The families enjoyed making memories with their students and eating great food. It was good to see Council members Jordan Dresser and Boniface Ridgely supporting the school, students, and families. The Northern Arapaho Tribal Children Programs and staff members were also in attendance. St. Stephens Indian School will be teaming up with more Northern Arapaho Tribal entities in the future to hold family/community events.”
