Four SPPS high school students were awarded the Posse Scholarship, which covers full four-year tuition for Macalester College. Only 10 scholars received the scholarship this year after a rigorous interview process that identifies students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential. The four SPPS students were recently recognized at a Board of Education meeting. 

Ȟoká Máza

Chaske Henry and his brother Robert Henry are students at Harding High School and founders of the drum group Ȟoká Máza. Inspired by their elder male role models, they use songs that have been passed down for generations as a way of connecting to their Indigenous heritage and sharing their culture. It is a way to forge healing and pay tribute to their roots, not only during Native American Heritage Month, but year-round.
