Capital High School sophomore Angelina Trevizo says she learns teamwork, makes friends and learns about her own Native heritage through Santa Fe Public School’s Native American Student Services programs.
Not much is taught in the classrom about Native American history and culture. “But in this program they teach about who we really are,” she said during the annual NASS Harvest Feast held Wednesday at the Genoveva Chavez Community Center.
The event is one of the ways the school district fosters a sense of community among its more than 400 Native students. Angelina says she’s made a lot of friends through the program, partly because no matter what pueblo or tribe they come from, they all have something in common.
