      Besides hosting Tribal ceremonial dances and events, it's important to educate youth about their culture in other ways, such as camps and classes. The Hoopa Education Department has continued to uphold that traditional and will again offer a Warrior/Acorn Camp to the community, with the purpose of upholding the local traditions.

      The camps, which will be geared towards ages 8-15 and will be held on Aug. 2-5, have been handed down through various departments and coordinators, but has always stayed true to its original focus-cultural subsistence.

      This year, Hoopa Tribal Education Student Service Coordinator, Ryan Ray,�was handed the reigns to the project and has a lengthy schedule of events planned for the youth.

      Inspirational speakers Maggie Steele and Diego Sanchez will offer some words of advice and lead the groups during the opening day. Both speakers will talk about gang awareness, substance abuse, and try to reinforce positive community action.
