The Prescott Valley School's Youth Chamber is sponsoring a week, May 6 to May 9, celebrating cultural diversity. On the final day, Thursday, May 9, a Cultural Diversity Celebration will take place in the school's lunchroom. All PVS students will attend and share in the many cultures being presented and celebrated. The theme of the week simply states, "Cultural Diversity is awesome!"

The cultures being displayed will include Germany, Italy, Spain, Jamaica, Great Britain, and many more modern countries. In addition, ten Native American cultures will be presented including Navajo, Hopi, Lakota Sioux, Ute, Cheyenne, and five more. There will be picture displays featuring everyday life, art, favorite foods, geography and music. The Youth Chamber members are preparing to have a show to stimulate the senses, as well as the minds of the students.

To help prepare for the event, two local citizens with Native American ancestry made a presentation to the Youth Chamber. Rick Littleboy, a full-blooded Navajo, and his wife, Chris Littleboy, a Choctaw, told stories and shared many experiences on what it is like to be a Native American in America today. They also shared many customs and myths, captivating the audience.

The Littleboys said that they were very impressed with the students' questions and interests.

The Youth Chamber asked, "When can they come back?" That will be happening again in June.
