A 5.5 by 27.5 foot mural on the east wall of the Van-Far cafeteria was painted by Ronnie Beshears, class of ‘71. Beginning in January, he worked on it two hours every day through May 7. Depicted is a day in the life of an Indian, beginning with a sunrise over the village, to the medicine man’s teepee, the daily ride on the open land, to the pow wow, and closing with the dance around the campfire at night.
