Walking Shield made it possible to finish my undergrad strong. They have been helpful and supportive during this journey. I appreciate everything they have done for me while I have been in school. They provided financial and emotional support throughout my college journey.

I want to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude to your organization for all the gifts you have provided to our children here on the Walker River Paiute Indian Reservation. We realize gift giving is only one of your many contributions to the Native American communities throughout the United States. Your efforts in providing scholarships, educational programs, community development, just to name a few, are so very much appreciated.

Pearl City, Hawaii — Pearl City fourth-graders recently visited the Freeport Art Museum for a tour of the Native American Gallery. Students learned about different tribes in class and came to the museum to see artifacts from those tribes. They finished the trip by creating a hands-on project of a parfleche, a Native American pouch.

The original images were taken by American photographer Edward Curtis at the turn of the 20th Century. Curtis’s goal was not just to photograph but also to document Native American traditional life. They have recently been painstakingly colorized by Anthony Malesys, 26, from Lille, France.
