HOLLYWOOD — Youngsters from the Hollywood Preschool celebrated Indian Day on Sept. 20 in the Classic Gym on the Hollywood Reservation.

The Hollywood Education Department and Hollywood Community Culture Center staff organized several activities for the preschoolers – including corn pounding, skillet tossing, hatchet throwing, archery, beading and patchwork created out of construction paper.

After everyone had a chance to take part in the activities, the preschoolers gathered in age groups to show off their clothes for the judges who chose a king and queen in each age category. The kids and their families were then treated to lunch.
