On Indigenous People’s Day, Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School had special guests and horses visit the school as part of a symbolic ride. One of the special guests was Winona LaDuke, an environmentalist and former candidate for U.S. vice president. LaDuke explained why the Honor the Earth ride was put together and the importance of Indigenous People’s Day. The students also were able to learn about the horses. A few volunteers had the opportunity to ride the horses. Horse-drawn wagon rides were also available to the classes. Annie Humphrey, a local musician, and Amanda Norman, principal at Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School, coordinated the event.
