VISITORS FROM JAPAN

VISITORS FROM JAPAN–

Fifteen  students from Sasiyama, Japan, visited Tamástslikt

Shalaya and Sasiyama Students

with representatives of their sister city, Walla Walla, WA.  When asked what their thoughts were about the nuclear situation in Japan, the only male student answered, “great risks, great returns.”  Sasiyama is 600 miles from the affected nuclear plant.  Their city sent aid to the disaster area.  There was little evidence of the language obstacle in their quickly learning and playing a round of stickgame with Shalaya.  The students caught on and had fun playing our most ancient of games.  They will be returning to Japan on April 2nd, so it is a whirlwind visit for them to get acquainted with our country.  Thanks to Bob Keatts and family for hosting the group each year and bringing them to Tamástslikt!
