The students are preparing to perform "Subsistence Is," a multimedia theatrical presentation about Native traditional skills and links between people and the land and resources of the Kenai Peninsula.
Kenaitze artist Bunny Swan Gease has been working with the children for three weeks on the production, which will feature stories, songs, dance and drama along with handmade costumes and sets.
Gease's residency is sponsored by the K-Beach PTA and the Artists in Schools program.
Artists in Schools is a program of the Alaska State Council on the Arts, which receives funding support from the Alaska State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
