Eagles Dancing Under a Full Moon
This April 8, spring night the Soaring Eagle workshop is bustling with many new little dancers. This is still the Spring Break time for many schools but there's no break in the spirit of enthusiasm and new growth in the Ballard school auditorium. One family joined us for the first time. After the blessing and a prayer song by Johnny Hood it was the usual 'Elders first' for a fine meal of ham, mashed potatoes, and the potluck side dishes did a fine job of filling out the table.
Jake, one of our young singers who got his start at Soaring Eagles, brought in his own drum special tonight so all the other singers joined in. The drum helped the singers put out some fine songs to keep those little feet moving and with movements encouraged by Chuck Cadotte, dance instructor, give insight onto the future of our next generation of pow wow dancers.
The night before the Workshop Soaring Eagle Dancers put on a preformance as part of a Multi-cultural Night at SDSU. They represented well and they make us all proud. We see the results of our efforts on behalf of the children.
Several birthdays were celebrated tonight and a particularly special one is Mr. Randy Edmonds. We can't finish this review without the deserved recognition of Jennifer Garcia. She was recognized by the Wellness Conference for her support and we join in saying 'Thank You' as well.
We hope to see you at a future 2015 Soaring Eagle dance workshop:
April 29, May 6 & 27, June 10 & 24
Pow wows to look forward to:
APR 11 & 12
APR 18 & 19
MAY 2 & 3
MAY 9 & 10

The wisdom of the traditional role of RESPECT continues to be a theme of heartfelt lessons from tribal life. This month continues to be a good time to review dance regalia and adjust for growth or wear. Mehan, Aho.
