Lawton students learn about Native American culture through dance

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- In light of National American Indian Heritage Month, students at Woodland Hills Elementary learned more about the Native American culture.

The Comanche Nation Dancers paid the school a visit and each tribe showcased a different dance. This is the third year for Woodland Hills to have the dancers and the goal is to teach students the importance of Native American culture.

"So, understanding their traditions not only shows them respect but gives them the chance to be able to understand more about what they do and what they represent to their culture," said Woodland Hills Crisis Interventionist Pam Brisolara.

Some tribes represented include the Kiowas, Comanches, and Apaches.
