We had a good time singing at the Soaring Eagles practices Normal Heights Community Center on 4649 Hawley Blvd. San Diego CA 619-281-5964 Wednesday October 29, 2008. A fine time for Indian humor, conversation, frantic activity on regalia, regional comfort food and some great songs for flying feet and swirling shawls.
From sign in sheets to speeches and the final sweep up. Smiles powered the efforts of all to help the Indian students learn and still have a good time. New faces of Indian families are in the room. Some other families were not able to attend due to sports and other commitments. But there is something good here to keep folks coming back week after week. You just have to be here to see it in the faces of the Indian children and the proud smiles of the parents.
For now foremost in every ones mind is the upcoming Veterans pow wow at the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians Recreation Center on November 8 & 9, 2008. The Soaring Eagle students will be brought into the pow wow circle at this event. See the link for pow wow poster: http://www.americanindiansource.com/calenderimages/vetsviejaswow.html
Debbie and the rest of the Razos brought in wonderfully smelling and warm belly filling chilaquillas. Fresh fruit and other delightful goodies had folks going back for seconds. Plenty of punch and water to cool down the hot dancing and the coffee hit the spot for the rest of us this cool evening.
The classes, fun, songs are free to the public but it is a community POT LUCK so bring something good for others to share next week.
Thank you, Aho, Mehan.
