Published 10:42pm Saturday, December 29, 2012


Pungo Christian Academy’s third-grade class recently studied the Powatan and Pocahontas Indian tribes. They discussed their ways of life, the foods they ate and their dress, which was mostly animal hides. The students were able to make their own Indian vests and necklaces, design their own face paintings, make a clay pot,and make an Indian sand painting with colorful sand. They also wrote a story using the Indians’ symbols; made a game the Indians played, made succotash with corn, beans and meal and also created headbands using different feathers that had different meanings. All of the children enjoyed the activities and had fun.
