Knowing Native Americans

Serpent Mound: The Largest Effigy Mound In the World. This season of mixed
schooling styles creates
spaces for parents and
grandparents to design our
own field trips on subjects
we believe are important
for our children to learn.

Preparing Children

By age twelve, my Boy Scout troop in Ogdensburg, New York was teaching me, reminding me, and teaching me again, to “Be Prepared.” Funny though, I can’t remember anything in particular that I learned about preparing back then. I don’t recall having a flashlight in my bedroom. I don’t remember any discussion about how to exit the second floor of our home if there was a fire.
