Chief Dull Knife Students make ornaments for National Christmas tree in D.C.

LAME DEER It's not often that a self-taught Montana artist gets national recognition from the federal government.
And it's practically unheard of for a group of Northern Cheyenne art students at Chief Dull Knife College total enrollment, about 260 students to have their work on display in Washington, D.C., for thousands of people to see.
But that's exactly what will happen beginning Dec. 1. Since mid-October, Billings-based Northern Cheyenne artist Alaina Buffalo Spirit and about 10 art students from the college have been crafting Montana's ornaments for this year's National Christmas Tree display and the tree in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, both in Washington.
"I want to show the nation what these Northern Cheyenne students can do," Buffalo Spirit said.

Its inspirational for the students to come up with art that reflects them. The video is really neat. Props up to these students and staff.
