October a Busy Month for Soaring Eagles

Our American Indian traditions are a dynamic, living experience and these workshops continue to nurture and they are made a part of the lifelong memories that are added to the tribal memory of the American Indian children. We were glad to welcome new families to the circle and hope to see them back again.

Our blessing this evening was offered by one of younger Soaring Eagles. We appreciate her words and learning the tradition of thanking the Creator. The beef stew and rice tasted good and was welcomed by all this fall evening. There were announcements about the busy month with Tecalote this past weekend, the International Chiefs of Police Conference this weekend and a California Indian Conference the following at SDSU. We also sold tickets for a nice blanket with many who had high hopes of taking it home. Thanks for the donation and the support to our program.

It felt good to see several of our experienced Soaring Eagles able to return this evening. They brought with them their experience of years in the pow wow arena and generously shared back with our younger dancers. They took time to work on the finer points of the girl's and women's categories. We were also reminded that adults and parents are always welcomed and encouraged to develop and renew their dancing as well. Even though the older dancers can't always attend it's good to see them back and know they are doing well.

American Indian children, friends and family continue to find their way to Old Town for traditional songs and good company. We invite you to bring your children and family to learn the pow wow dance and enjoy the friendship of the gatherings. The ‘Back to Basics’ dance classes will continue into the new year!
