ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Fourth grade students at Creek View Elementary held their annual potlatch ceremony to culminate their social studies unit on Native Americans on Friday, Sept. 6. 175 Students created traditional Native American arts and crafts to barter and trade with other students at the potlatch. Native Americans frequently held potlatches, which were ceremonies that could last several days. Different tribes from different regions would come together for the traditional ceremony to share customs and cultures and trade goods with other tribes. "The students enjoyed showing their items to trade as well as being excited about the items they obtained," said Creek View fourth grade teacher, Fran Gerlich. "The students get excited about dressing up as Indians and Eskimos and such to go along with their bartering activity."
