Pease read this letter from the NAADV board regarding our Pieten Policy....
Sinterklaas' birthday is coming up and the Sinterklaas Committee is working hard to put on another great party!
With this year's celebration come new traditions. In light of international debate on Sinterklaas and the Pieten, the board of the NAADV, in consultation with the Sinterklaas Committee, would like to inform you that we have implemented the following changes:
Zwarte Piet will be referred to as "Piet" and presented as a helper to Sinterklaas. Piet's face will be natural and void of any makeup. His/her hair will be natural. He/she will continue to wear a page costume. Reference to color or a servant relation will be omitted from presentations and lyrics. Decorations, art activities and music will be adapted accordingly.
We trust that these changes will help perpetuate the celebration of the Sint tradition outside of its region of origin and that the children will continue to have a great experience.
The NAADV Board
PLEASE NOTE: This event is only open to members who are current in their 2016 Annual Dues. If you have not paid for 2016, please e-mail ronaldhnijssen[a]gmail.com
