Native American girls learn about growing into strong women at the Nawayee Center School in Minneapolis. A women's health class at the alternative school offers lessons in self-esteem and respect, and how and when to walk away from unhealthy relationships. A culture class helps them find their voices through drumming and singing -- a tradition usually reserved for males. In a recent class, girls sang a ballad, "You Should Be My Man," written by classmate Jodi Vermillion, second from left. "If you sit around the drum, it just like brings joy to you," said one student. "I love the drum and just to sing around it."
