Trip 1 to Heritage Center:
What I learned at the Heritage Center is that back in the old day they didn’t have no color in the TV and it was based on the day it was happening and that day is what happened.
The space suits were made out of leather back then.
There was a pink telephone that looked so rusty like back in the old days.

My study was on Buffalo Bird Woman “Maaxiiriwia” also “Maxidiwiac” or “Waheenee” they all mean Buffalo Bird Woman. She was part of the Three Affiliated Tribe. The most important part is she survived the smallpox virus after almost her whole tribe died. She tried to keep her tradition going but all of the kids wanted to play video games. She lived by the Knife River in earth lodges. There were two camps. The summer and winter camp. The summer camp had better earth lodges and it was just a couple miles away from the Knife River. The winter camps were sloppy because the women didn’t have time to make it nice. But it was down by the river were it was cool and they could see the sparkling water. It took the women and men to build the earth lodge about 2-3 weeks. The reason why they called it earth lodge is because you build it out of the earth from sticks and dirt. Buffalo Bird Woman was born in 1839 and died in 1932 so she was about 93 years old. When she caught the smallpox she fought through it because she was a strong native woman but it left her blind. That’s all folks. My relative Buffalo Bird Woman was strong “Maaxiiriwia”.

Hi I'm Brenden and I'm going to tell you about summer
school. You would think the teachers are mean but they
are really nice. In summer school we learn about
new things. In the morning we meet at the cafeteria at
8:30. We eat and chat and watch TV and at 9:00
we walk to the school. We have to navigate
through the crazy sidewalks of Untied Tribes Technical
College to reach the school (Just kidding, it's just
two blocks away). When we reach the school we go
straight to the classroom, and we sit down and read
our books. At 9:30 we get our notebooks and
write down notes about what we have read. We go
out for recess at 10:00. Sometimes we watch a
movie when we come in from recess. At 11:15 we
head out to recess and at 11:30 go back to the
cafeteria where we eat. Sometimes the TV is on
and we can watch TV. We wait until the teacher
tells us we can go dump our trays. We wait until
everybody is done and we go to Boys and Girls
club. In Boys and Girls club we play on the
computers and sometimes we go in the game room to play
X-box and stuff like that. On Thursdays we get
to go swimming after lunch. I think everybody
should go to summer school because it is fun and you
get to do fun stuff.
