Crow woman's mission is to dispel stereotypes

Birdie Real Bird, a member of the Crow Tribe, hopes to dispel myths and stereotypes of American Indians by sharing her culture with students.

Real Bird was at the Arrowhead Elementary this week to talk about the Crow language and the Crow way of life. She taught students how to say basic phrases in Crow and showed them how to make cradleboards and traditional Crow dolls.

Real Bird is an artist and school counselor with a master's degree from Montana State University-Billings.
