Making baskets – Alyssa

Today makes day 5 in the program. We started the day off with indigenous games. I so far love learning the moves of the activity that’s being taught. It helps turn my face from muggy in the morning to sweaty and tried after. After breakfast we had our common app and creative writing class with Shelva. I was working on my common app essay and it was honestly the best part of my day. I love writing on things that’s happened in my life.We also had our Aztec math as well today with Vicente. I am really learning a lot this year. After our free time we were basket weaving in the talking circle. It was really fun for me because my tribe comes from an ancestry of women who weaved beautiful baskets. As others or myself say it’s in my blood to make them. I liked helping and watching those of my peers who’s was there first time making baskets.
