Soaring Eagles Back on Track

After our summer classes at Pepper Grove the Soaring Eagle dance workshop this October 5, 2016 is back at Ballard Parent Center in Old Town. This evening we sang traditional Indian songs and the children danced traditional dances and all was right in our San Diego American Indian pow wow dance world. We felt very good that there is harmony and balance, in the dance circle, where it should be. Many of our other familiar features were in place.

During the opening period of the workshop before the blessing, Chuck Cadotte gave us an update on the Standing Rock situation. He told us that some 200 tribes from across North America are represented as well as other nations from around the world. The efforts will continue throughout the coming months and winter. Donations of blankets, coats, shoes and boots, over the counter medical supplies and monetary funds have been donated by Soaring Eagle families and headed to North Dakota. We thank you for your prayers and support in this effort. Aho

After a fine meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, salads, fruit and rolls we started the Dance workshop. Some two dozen young dancers made choices of shawls, sticks, hoops and bells and filled the circle with enthusiasm.


Chuck gave special instruction in several of the dance styles. We are always grateful for the dedication of our singers and dance mentors and parents in support of our children. Seeing so many young dancers makes us feel good about the future of our traditions and community and especially the lives of our children.
