Soaring Eagles July in the Park

fireworksBy Roy Cook

After the firecracker holiday we took a short breather. More of a gasp than a breath! Those that could attended a Recovery event at Sycuan in the pow wow arena. In brilliant regalia and happy smiles our performance group added to the entertainment package of the event. Enjoy these images from Abel Jacome, Soaring Eagle event coordinator.

Our blessing for this July 12 evening meal was delivered by SCAIR Senior advisor, Randy Edmonds. And, once again, we are fortunate to have three drums for the Indian children to enjoy dancing to. The Falling Rock drum, Green River and San Diego Inter-tribal Singers drum pushed up good lively intertribal songs for the parents and Soaring Eagle dance students. These songs will continue to help the students in to the circle of dance and the pow wow world.

Under a clear sky with a 3/4 moon this July, 12, 2011 we reflect on this San Diego Soaring Eagle evening. Our Indian Children dancing joyfully on the green grass of Mother Earth is a delight to see.

Debbie and the Soaring Eagle pot luck dishes had a well received SCAIR sponsored meal of hot dogs, garden fresh green salad, potato salad, chips, ambrosia and baked beans. All pot luck dishes made for a good thankful meal.
