Hollywood actor will perform skits with students at local camp
By Jenny Kane
The famed star is coming to Shiprock to help out with a local community camp and series of workshops. Sheen will be working with both children and adults Sunday through Tuesday. He arrives Saturday.
Sheen will work with the camp's drama clinic, which will produce a 45-minute video starring both Sheen and the children.
"Anyone that would like to go, can go," said Kathleen Norton, field director for the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health.
Sheen, however, is friends with the parents of one of the volunteers leading the drama portion of the camp. He spoke at a Native Vision event initially and gained further interest in what Native Vision actually did for communities.
"We've really forgotten about our Native American population," Sheen said in a video for Native Vision. "Our citizens on the reservation have been neglected for so very long."
