Hobart youth carries on tradition for Native American Ministries Sunday


For Native American Ministries Sunday, Hobart First United Methodist Church was blessed by native youth Lani Kauahquo-Elix, Kiowa and Ponca.

Lani performed the Lord’s Prayer in interpretive sign language. She wore her native dress with headdress, footwear and jewelry.

Members of the congregation were reminded of Lani’s mother, Sarah Kauahquo, who performed interpretive sign language to prayers and songs when she was a youth in the church. Sarah has passed on her talent and beauty to Lani and the congregation is very blessed to have her.

Lani also plays handbells and sings in the choir at Hobart FUMC.

Lani is an accomplished musician, playing in the Hobart Marching Band and singing in the Hobart High School Choir. She has received numerous awards at band and choir competitions and has been named to the All-State Choir.
