Learning native traditions

Klamath River Early College of the Redwoods celebrated California Indian Day with traditional activities Thursday in Crescent City. 

“Cultural relevance is a focus at KRECR every day,” said director Bernadette Johnson. “Having a recognized holiday just gives us a chance to join with others honoring local native people in a more public way.” Foster grandparent and elder Marvin Mattz shared his family history and insights about Yurok values. Parent volunteers Bridgette and Hoppow Norris joined their children Dottie and Temperance by cooking Indian tacos and demonstrating the use of eel hooks for the students.
