e-Connections Post Leataata Floyd

Hundreds of families attended a block party on Saturday to celebrate Leataata “Tata” Floyd, the Seavey Circle activist who inspired the renaming of Jedediah Smith Elementary School in her honor.

Leataata Floyd’s son, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd, attended the celebration along with his brother, Malcolm Floyd, who played for the Houston Oilers. (The brothers share the same name with different spellings.) Malcolm Floyd coaches football and teaches at C.K. McClatchy High School.

Block party festivities included a barbecue, music and Polynesian dance performances by students and professionals.
