Hello My Name Is...

Oki!  My name is Gaylene.  I am married to Gary Henderson.  We have three sons, Ramon, Cody and Simone.  We also have 9 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild, Natalie. 
I was born and raised here in Browning Montana.  I am an enrolled Blackfeet.  I love living the traditional ways of our tribe.  I pick plants for medicine and dry foods for the long wintery months that we endure. 
I teach music at Browning Elementary School.  Last year we made 24 drums from deerskins.  This year we will be making rattles.  In second grade we will learn notes and discover new instruments both traditional and ordinary.  3rd grade we will continue our notes and begin playing the recorder.  I am looking forward to a great year and teaching your children.
