On June 14th, 2018 someone broke into Oo-Oo-Nah Art & Cultural Center through the back door, stealing the majority of our jewelry-making equipment. Tribal police were called and a formal report was filed.
The loss of our stone-cutting machine, grinder, 4 full acetylene tanks, bracelet and ring mandrills (2 of each) has deprived our students of having a jewelry program this year.
Most of our equipment had been donated by generous donors over the years and/or purchased with grant money.
Oo-Oo-Nah does not receive any government funding — Federal or Tribal, so we are turning to you, our community friends and partners for assistance in replacing this equipment.
A GoFundMe account on behalf of Oo-Oo-Nah has been setup to support this effort.
Please know our equipment is essential to teaching young people how to make jewelry, encouraging them to become independent artists. Several of our previous students have gone on to become wonderful jewelers/artists, creating self-sustaining careers for themselves.
Whatever amount you can donate is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your generous support from everyone at the Oo-Oo-Nah Art & Cultural Center, especially the children.
