School Board Belief Statements
We believe that school, community and students have a right and responsibility to expect a fair, fun and functional education enabling each student to achieve the highest academic and emotional level possible.
We believe a major purpose of our school is to educate youth so they are comfortable in and move easily between traditional Native American culture and other cultures.
We believe only through the support of the Tribal Council can there be open positive interaction and unity among school, community, parents and all Tribal agencies to provide the best possible education for our students.
We believe the community and school desire a safe and respectful learning environment for its children.
In 1999 Omaha Nation School students retraced the steps of their ancestors' last successful buffalo hunt, winter 1876. The buffalo were difficult to find, and the tribe traveled all the way to northwestern Kansas, over thirty days, to find a herd.
Brad Penner, a producer with Nebraska Educational Television, accompanied the students and staff and produced the video, which was aired as a segment on "Statewide" in 1999. We want to thank Nebraska Educational Television for permission to share it on our website.
The Making of "We Are One -- Umoⁿhoⁿ"
Behind the scenes of the NETV production. 1984
Nebraska Public television produced a series called "We Are One, Umonhon" in the summer of 1983, designed to be utilized in the curriculum of fourth graders, statewide. It was broadcast in 1984 as eight twenty-minute segments. Producer/Director Chet Kincaid worked with cast and crew on locations north of Macy, where an earth-lodge village was created for the program.
This "Making of....." video was created by John Mangan, who apologizes for the not-so-great video quality
