TAT Boys and Girls Club takes to the runway

Fashion Show celebrates Club’s 12th Anniversary
By Jerry W. Kram
In 2001, the Three Affiliated Tribes Boys and Girls Club was officially chartered. A dozen years later, the club has facilities in all six segments of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation and has provided recreational, education and leadership opportunities for hundreds of youth in New Town, Parshall, Four Bears, White Shield, Mandaree and Twin Buttes.
To celebrate their 12th Anniversary, young people from every segment gathered in New Town to put on a fashion show for the community. The New Town Civic Center was transformed into a high class fashion venue with runway and red carpet, bright lights and and uptempo soundtrack.
“We wanted to do something that was a little different and out of the ordinary,” said Ryan Eagle, executive director of the TAT Boys and Girls Club. “One of the things we find that kids have a problem with is self confidence – getting in front of people and being proud of themselves. So we thought what could be better than a fashion show?”
