Crazy Horse

Upon suffering beyond suffering; the Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world.  A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of seven generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again. In that day there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things, and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I  salute the light within your eyes where the whole universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be as one."

ATTENTION!!! Ft McCoy Pow Wow Cancelled!!!

Attention Everyone!!
We just got a call from the Dave & Linda of the Veterans Honor Society, and they informed us that the VFW Veterans Retirement Home has Cancelled the Ft McCoy Pow Wow November 7-9, 2008. They had an event last weekend that did not do very well financially, and their Board had a meeting today and decided to Not have this event at this time. Ken immediately called the Veterans home and spoke to the coordinator there, who verified that the event was Cancelled. Every effort was made by Ken to keep the event on, but they had made up their minds and this is where we stand.

We have spent a LOT of Time and Money and Effort with a LOT of other people in coordinating this event and are Truely Disappointed, but it was out of our hands. Be assured that we will have contracts drawn up for future pow wows that we are involved in coordinating.

We will always continue our support for Veterans everywhere. The disappointment we feel right now in the cancellation of this event is for all our Vendors, Dancers, Support Staff and everyone we have personally contacted and invited to this event.

Thank you all for the support given us
We will see you at the next pow wow
If you need any more information
please contact Ken on his cell
or Dave and Linda Reese.

Everyone Please say a prayer for all our Veterans,
In this time of great Need.
Thank you again,

Ken & Celeste
