Motherhood is Sacred Walk, which took place on Tribal Campus, invited tribal employees, members of the three sister tribes, and the community to partake in the walk to celebrate. Social Services held an Open House after the walk to meet their new staff members. Refreshments were provided and roses were given to mothers who attended the walk.
On Wednesday, May 22, the Division of Social Services held the Motherhood is Sacred Walk “Honoring our Matriarchs” at the Mouache-Capote Building.
