NAWMAC

Native Americans Who Make A Change(NAWMAC) is a student led group which started this January at MTS.   NAWMAC focuses on issues affecting the youth of the Muckleshoot community.  A key focus for NAWMAC is the impact that drugs and alcohol have on our youth and how they can work to change this pattern.   NAWMAC works to celebrate connections with the community and is creating projects to connect youth with the community in a number of different ways.

In March NAWMAC, students attended a Senior Center lunch and assisted elders with assembling Easter baskets.  For April, in addition to attending another Senior Center lunch, students will be baking cookies for the elders which will be delivered during the lunch.  Also in April, we will also have our first LITTER PICK-UP up as NAWMAC has adopted a section of road from King County!  Students hope to conduct a litter pick-up at least once monthly.

NAWMAC meets once a week after school with additional times for community outings.  Any MTS student in grades 6-12 interested in being a part of this group please contact either Erika Gonzalez or Christie Kolbe.

Additionally, NAWMAC students would like to announce they are collecting donations of new socks/underwear, new or used back packs, clothing and blankets.  Students are working with the Chief Seattle Club to make a delivery of these items to homeless Native Americans at the shelter in Seattle later this spring.  Donations can be dropped off at MTS to Erika Gonzalez or Gloria Simmons.
