Trails Center Presents Native American Youth Dancers and Drummers:
Wyoming Indian High School Students Celebrate the Closing of
"Resurgence of Native Spirit" Art Show


The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is celebrating Native American culture and art with the Wolf Dancers of Wyoming Indian High School.

The event, free and open to the public, will take place Sept. 4, at 1:00 p.m.  The celebration features approximately 10 Native American dancers and drummers.

The dancers and drummers will celebrate the closing of the Trails Center’s temporary art show, “Resurgence of Native Spirit.”  The art show runs through Sept. 4, and includes 20 prints and 30 ceramic sculptures created by Wyoming Indian High School students.

Cleve Bell, art teacher at Wyoming Indian High School, coordinated the exhibit with his art students.

Bell worked closely with staff at the Trails Center to produce “Resurgence of Native Spirit.”  “This exhibit provided us the opportunity to show off the talent and creativity of young Native American artists,” said Alex Rose, an interpreter at the Trails Center.

The art work is available for sale, with part of the proceeds benefiting the National Historic Trails Center Foundation.

This exhibit was made possible in part by the Rocky Mountain Nature Association.

For more information about the event, contact Alex Rose at 307-261-7780.
