Spotlight on these Two Kids for Native Heritage Month!

Check out these two outstanding youth were featured on Time For Kids' website this past month for Native Heritage Month!

First up is Rito Lopez Jr. (Pima/Apache/Arikara/Hidatsa/Mandan) who won first place in the youth category at the 23rd Annual Heard Museum World Championship Hoop Dance Contest. Here he is in a video from Lizard Light Production.

Next up is Niizhoo Sullivan, who we've featured here on as one of the singers in the youth drum group Hay Creek. You might also remember he and brother, Preston, sang for President Barack Obama at the White House Tribal Nations Conference, in Washington, D.C.
