After our tour of the fort, we had a meeting and introduced everyone. Mr. Rick talked to us about the Old Stories, New Voices camp and its goals. Then Mr. Lawrence, the camp director talked to us about expectations for the week.
After the meeting we all went to bed. Whew we were all tired.
Tomorrow is American Indian day. We are going to learn all about the American Indians who lived here. We are going to hear the music, learn about the dances of the Sioux Lakota and eat Indian food. In the afternoon we are going to go for a hike, fish, play shinny (an American Indian game) and try our hand at archery. It is going to be a very full day.
We all arrived at beautiful Comanche Hall at Ft. Robinson State Park on Monday, August 11 at 5pm. Mr. Lawrence, our director, put us into four companys. Company A is headed by Mr. David and Ms. Katie; Company B is Ms. Tessa and Mr. Ezra; Company C is Mr. Patrick and Ms. Linn and Company D is Mr. Brandon and Ms. Amelia.
