The students can attend a mini Pow Wow and participate in Indian educational activities that include drumming, beading, and shawl making. Siletz School students and staff are currently involved in a program called Resolving Conflict Creatively. Six teachers have been trained so far with plans to integrate the valuable communication program into the entire student body.
