SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE
Cheyenne Clark and T.J. Warner went through a rigorous Shotokan Karate test at the Bemidji Dojo, conducted by Sensai Yaguchi, an 81 year old karate master who is one of the few 9th degree black belts in the world.
They have been in training through our after-school classes and their efforts paid off. They both successfully completed the tests and both earned their orange belts.
Welcome to Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School– home to the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School Silver Eagles.
Bug O Nay Ge Shig School was founded in 1975 in Cass Lake, Minnesota as an alternative school to serve 35 Ojibwe students from Leech Lake Reservation. The school was started in response to parents’ concerns that public schools were not meeting the students academic and cultural needs.
The school was named in honor of Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig (Hole in the Day), a local Ojibwe who lived in that area at the turn of the century. As Eddie Benton Banai shared at the school’s naming ceremony, “he fought for our land, he fought for our people, but uppermost, he fought for the future of our children.”
From humble beginnings, the Bug O Nay Ge Shig School has matured into a fully accredited educational program. Since that time, the school has transformed its role into a magnet school which serves Native American students living on or near Leech Lake Reservation. After 25+ years, the Bug O Nay Ge Shig School now serves more than 200 students of various tribal backgrounds.
It is operated by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and governed by the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig school board. It is located in the Chippewa National Forest in North central Minnesota and is now a K-12 school that provides open enrollment.
The mission of the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School is to provide quality education and promote healthy community through lifelong learners.
