HOLLYWOOD – A group of superheroes greeted preschool students on the Hollywood Reservation prior to their lunch hour at the Dorothy S. Osceola (DSO) complex on April 20.

Staff members from the tribe’s Advocacy and Guardianship department came dressed up as superheroes – Wonder Woman, Superwoman, Superman Batman and Robin – to have fun and interact with the kids. Instructors and staff at the school got into the sprit as well – as did many of the youngsters – dressing up as their favorite superhero characters.

Advocacy and Guardianship staff read the children’s book “Super Rawr!” about a dinosaur dressed in a cape who can jump over tall buildings and saves the day. By the end of the picture book Rawr likes just being himself – at least until he goes to sleep and dreams of being an astronaut.

The visit was part of “National Child Abuse Prevention Month” which is observed every April. From April 18 to April 22, the Advocacy and Guardianship department’s tribal family and child advocates hosted several activities to encourage the tribal community to show support for child abuse prevention.

Advocacy and Guardianship is part of the tribe’s Health and Human Services department (HHS) and includes the Tribal Family and Child Advocacy (TFCA) program.
