During the study of Native American literature, Deborah Unger’s English III GT students read and recited Native American poetry and myths, listened and reflected on the tranquility of Native flute melodies, created totem poles and researched the Native American Code Talkers during World War II.

In celebration of the Native American culture, the students also learned a Native American chant and choreography with rhythm sticks, which represent the three-foot spears that early Native Americans used to train young warriors to catch the enemies’ spears in battle.
