Visiting Speaker Helps GDS Explore Native American Heritage

On November 16, GDS welcomed Erika Reynolds to campus to help us celebrate Native American Heritage Month. Ms. Reynolds, who is a Cherokee/Saura/Arawak fiber artist, met with students in each division to teach them about traditional native crafts. Each student got to try their hand at one of the crafts. Lower school students made corn husk dolls while middle and upper schoolers got to try finger weaving.

Ms. Reynolds’ visit was part of this year’s diversity & belonging programming, Celebrating the Triad’s Heritage and History, which connects our students with those in our community who embody the heritages and share the histories of cultures celebrated nationally throughout the year.

We’d like to thank Ms. Reynolds for coming to GDS to share her culture and expertise with our students!
