Simnasho area residents rejoiced at the
reopening of their school January 24. After a
12-year absence, area children can once
again attend school close to home. No
longer will children be subject to three hours
on a bus each day.
The new one-room school house, located
directly behind the former school building, .
opened its doors to nearly 20 anxious
children. Opening was traditional with
Seven-Drum services and a blessing by
Shaker Church members. Following
ceremonies were lunch and speeches at the
Simnasho Longhouse. Over 100 community
members attended the event, including
School District Superintendent Phil Riley
and board member Bette Wallan.
A new school in Simnasho has long been
the dream of area parents and children.
Through cooperation between the Tribe and
the District, that dream is now a reality.

Spouse abuse is the use or threat
of physical violence by the abuser to

Physical Abuse includes kicking,
hitting, biting, choking, pushing and
assault with weapons, victims may
have difficulty preventing or escap
ing physical abuse because, very of

relationship also keep them from re
porting or documenting the abuse,
victims stay in physically abusive
relationships for many reasons. Some
victims stay because they blame
themselves, believe the abuse will
stop, are financially dependent, or

Isolation. Abusers often control
what their victims do, whom they
see, and where they go. Many abus

with whom their victims have contact.
Spouse abuse is a complex prob
