Soaring Eagles May Gathering
By Roy Cook, Vickie Gambala

This May 9, 2013, cool night the Soaring Eagle workshop is riding the crest of community presentations and the UCSD pow wow this past week end. Tonight there are our resident drums: Green River and San Diego Intertribal that kept those little dancers bring out their dance moves. They are encouraged by Chuck Cadotte, SDUSD dance instructor. He and his son Michael demonstrate and give encouragement to our next generation of pow wow dancers. Circulating with a signup sheet is our representative from the SDUSD Indian Education program coordinator: Connie Greybull at 619-293-4427.

Following the blessing by SCAIR Senior Advisor Randy Edmonds a brisk and well attended session of the dance workshop was held. Tonight there was a fine healthy selection of fried chicken, rice side dishes, a sausage patty and a bean soup, chips, bread, butter and a green salad to enjoy. We acknowledge and appreciate all parents and folks for being ready to have a good generous time doing this potluck effort for the children. Our focus for the Soaring Eagle program is constantly and always will be the Native American children.

Parent and friends are co-sponsors along with SDUSD Indian Education Program and SCAIR and are very important to the Tribal social aspect of the Soaring Eagles dance workshop program success. Everyone is welcome. Tonight Randy introduced a Native Hawaiian, Fale- from the big Island of Hawaii.

Remember to bring a potluck item or side dish for the Soaring Eagles dance workshop evening feast. It is our Traditional Indian way to practice hospitality and generosity when we invite all to attend the next Indian gathering and share the meal with the whole community.
