Celebrating Wellness, Culture and Healthy Futures - Living our Path of Transformation and Indigenous Values
On Friday, October 12, the Native American Community Academy will be hosting their 13th Annual Feast Day beginning with a Sunrise Ceremony at 6:00 a.m.
At 7:00 am there will be a 5K run hosted by the NACA Language Classes. Registration is now open and you may contact NACA Main Campus at 505.266.0992 for more information.
This year’s theme for the NACA annual feast is, "Honoring Our Children: Wellness, Culture and Healthy Futures - Living our Path of Transformation and Indigenous Values."
We are expecting close to 1500 people this year. Thank you to our families and staff members for your dedication and time in making our feast day a success.
NACA Feast Day is a celebration of excellence in Indigenous education, Native languages, traditions and ways of knowing, as well as song, dance, food and other cultural activities.
Isabel, 14, and a freshman at NACA Main Campus says, “I think NACA Feast is important because it brings everyone in the NACA Community together and we do cultural activities in the classroom too. It’s fun.”
Her best friend Madison says, “At NACA Feast we get to show off our culture and be proud of our identity. My favorite is to watch the dances.”
The 13th Annual NACA feast day themes reflect the school’s core values and the ways in which community equates holistic health, wellness and the empowerment of Native youth. We welcome you to join us and learn more about leadership in indigenous education!
Student processions begin at 10:00 am followed by presentations. Feast will commence 12:30 – 2pm. The event is hosted at NACA main campus (1000 Indian School Rd. ABQ 87104).
