On behalf of the Nez Perce Education Department, we are sending our prayers to the Marek family. Larry was well-respected as a tribal leader, cultural bearer, artist, and educator. We value the exceptional commitment that his sisters Agnes and Joanna have exhibited as former or current staff in our department, so know that focus on service comes from their family lineage that was also evident in Larry's life. Qe' ci yew' yew'.
