Saginaw Chippewa Academy students are now part of a partnership that could be described as “far out.”
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration recently welcomed 26 new NASA Explorer Schools to inspire students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The At-Large Program’s annual Chi-asin powwow is viewed as a culturally-balanced event that promotes the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe’s historical significance in southern Saginaw County.
“The Place of Our Ancestors” traditional powwow will take place June 16-18 at Showboat Park in Chesaning.
The powwow kicks off June 16 with a four-person golf scramble at Twin Brooks Golf Club in the morning and a family-friendly musical show featuring several local acts in the evening.
Sixteen-year-old Joe Fisher II has an ax to grind. And its a red B.C. Rich featuring a “beast” guitar shape that he brings to the music club being taught weekly on the Isabella Reservation.
Joe has aspirations of eventually playing in a band. But to do so, he knows he has to sharpen his musical skills. That’s where the club—conducted by Brent Jackson—has been instrumental with his development.
