Piankeshaw Trails Native American School Assembly Rocks Ohio!

Posted on Sat, Nov 12, 2011

native american school assemblyOne of our new programs this year is a real stunner! Piankeshaw Trails, performed magnificently by Sheryl Hartman, is an awesome school assembly program that introduces kids to the culture and history of the Woodland Tribes of the Ohio Valley. It is a great show in it’s own right. But it is also perfect for schools in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Kentucky who are looking for ideas and means to increase kids interest in this field which is so heavily featured in state standards all across the Midwest.

In Indiana, schools have some familiarity with the show, because it has been available there in the past. But this marks the first year Piankeshaw has ventured into other parts of the Midwest.

Sheryl was recently up in the Cleveland, Ohio area and visited the Ledgeview School in Macedonia (Nordonia Hills District). Our contact there, Lisa, wrote: “ Sheryl did a great job tailoring her presentation to the age/attention span of the groups! Also we were impressed with her ability to manage large groups and keep them engaged! All 10’s!”

Another client school, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Cincinnati, Ohio wrote: “ Fast moving with lots of information. Presenter adapted VERY well to different age groups!”native american school show

And here is one more from Saint Jude School in Elyria, Ohio: “ Our students LOVED this program! They especially loved all of the hands on activities! Our teachers were very impressed with the quality of the presentation.”

Sheryl is a class act to be sure. She is down in Kentucky this week, and I am sure the reviews from schools there will be equally great! A trained anthropologist who was married to a Native American, Sheryl not only brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her performances, she also infuses them with her own enthusiasm for the subject , and illuminates them with her own warm, bubbly, happy personality. Kids adore her!
