At the beginning of the 2017 fall semester, the Mescalero Apache Schools will host a Blessing Feast on August 22nd-23rd and a Blessing Run on August 23rd. All students are highly encouraged to wear ribbon shirts for the Blessing Feast and Blessing Run held at the school. The Apache language teachers want to make all parents and guardians aware so that families will have enough time to prepare their student(s) ribbon shirt(s). Since custom t-shirts won’t be available to all students this year, handmade ribbon shirts by the students’ family would be more significant.
In an effort to show cultural and traditional awareness, the Apache Language Program at MAS, wishes all students to wear their ribbon shirts with pride!
