Breezy Soaring Eagles Children Workshop

By Roy Cook

This workshop experienced a strong wind and warm weather for our region and a seasonal symbolic encouragement to our new families and newest Soaring Eagle dancers. This month of May is the local start of the pow wow season. We hope you enjoy the images of our hope and future Soaring Eagle dancers from the April 30th SE Dance workshop at the SDUSD Ballard center.

Now that we are in a spring venue perhaps we will see you at a future 2014 Soaring Eagle dance workshop: May 7, 14, 2014. Control click on blue text and see:

Vickie Gambala reviewed the start of the Soaring Eagle workshop, activities and the places we have met in the past years. She acknowledged the community volunteers. In this spirit Jennifer Garcia stepped up and directed the order of songs and children dancers this evening. The Garcia family also prepared the evening feast and the girls served the meal. Aho to them all for this fine effort.

We all wish to live in a world of harmony and in balance. This dance workshop strives to encourage the continuity of our tribal cultures and is bound up in the wisdom lessons of traditional life. This harmony is a message that we find in all the tribal Americas communities regardless of political boundaries.


The Ballard Center location is in Old Town: San Diego Unified School District, SDUSD, and under the auspices of the Title 7 Indian Education parent committee at Ballard Parent Center 2375 Congress St. San Diego, CA 92110.
