We also offer Native American Flute programs that can be included in any program.
Diversity Programs/Workshops: Water Beetle uses PowerPoint to discuss ways to avoid stereotyping Native Americ
Kathy and Joe did a wonderful job sharing Native American lore with our guests at our West Texas Heritage event.
This is our second year to have Water Beetle Cherokee Programs and we are very happy with the performances. The booth, the crafts that they demonstrate and the programs they present are enjoyed by all our visitors, both young and old alike. We hope to have them at our 2011 event.
The Come & Take It Festival, Gonzales, Texas
The students were fascinated with the presentation and the U.S. History teachers were so happy that I had brought in a speaker that could help them with information about the Trail of Tears. Students especially enjoyed viewing the artifacts.
Joe and Kathy are excellent. The kids love them and they are very knowledgeable. I have learned something new everytime I seen them.
Excellent stories in afternoon. Evening program so impressive that most of the audience remained for almost two hours afterwards to ask questions, look at the displays and enjoy Kathy and Joe.
Kathy is extremely knowledgeable on Cherokee culture and history.
We will have them come back.
