On Thursday, February 20, 2020, Hope Valley School welcomed Chris Newell (Passamaquoddy) who was a senior advisor for Dawnland, which won an Outstanding Research Emmy. What an honor to have Chris at our school. The students and staff were engrossed with his knowledge of Native American history and culture which he shared through stories and music. The students were fully engaged and delighted to sing with him. He united the students effortlessly and encouraged them to come together through song and dance. Check out the video of Chris leading the students in a song. This video is Chris singing with the sound of his drum. Best of luck at the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor, Maine (@abbemuseum).
