Soaring Eagle Back at Ballard

By Roy Cook

Soaring Eagle dance workshops Sept. 14, 2011 is back at Ballard Parent Center in Old Town. We invite you to bring your children and family to learn by observation and participation, a traditional way. Come on down for the pow wow dance, music and also enjoy the friendship of the gatherings.


We sang and the children danced and all was right in our world. There is Harmony and balance where it should be. Many of our other familiar features were in place: The hospitality of the SCAIR sponsored community feast, SCAIR tutor, Jeanne Alvarado and the graded reading books-My New School and September 11, Remember.


The SDUSD Title VII Parents committee and concerned community members met in room 3 for discussion and questions for the administrator and superintendent about the Title VII Indian Education program since the retirement of Vickie Gambala.

After the Pala, Barona and Sycuan pow wows (Enjoy the images of these events again.) we feel that many San Diego American Indian pow wow trails lead to the Old Town location and the Soaring Eagles:
