We celebrated the end of our Identity unit in SJCU with a shared Pre-Thanksgiving meal. Each student brought a food of significance to them or their family. Some students shared stories, recipes and stories surrounding their food/dish. We had candles, flowers and delicious food. Thanks to all families who helped contribute to this lovely meal!

Pike Place & Eighth Generation Store Field Trip

Last week we took a trip to Louie Gong’s store, Eighth Generation, the first and only Native owned shop in Pike Place Market AND in Washington State! Louie is the creator of the Mockups shoes, the project students recently finished for the Identity Unit in SJCU. We were able to get a tour of his shop and hear Louie’s story as a multiracial Native artist and activist. Students shared their shoes and the shoes are currently on display this week in his shop! If you have a chance to visit his store this week, please do!

The students also had the opportunity to interview vendors in Pike Place Market about where their products come from for their Global Sustainability Project in Spanish.

Here are some photos from our trip. img_8610 img_8608 img_8586 img_8603 img_8583 img_8602 img_8582 img_8601 img_8600 img_8598 img_8596 img_8593 img_8590 img_8587 img_8582 img_8580 img_8578 img_8576 img_8575
