Soaring Eagles Adjust to the Season

By Roy Cook

Soaring Eagle dance workshop feels the chill of the winter season. October showers in the city and on East county activities too. The Southern Indian Health Wellness conference had some very informative break-out sessions on topical issues in our American Indian community. Many Soaring Eagle parents attended.

Historically Tribal America has been a major influence in the political and ethical basis of this great country. We can document influential human values, cultural lifestyles and political ideas that have become ingrained in the national American spirit.

We continually look forward to experienced, contest winners and past head dancers to mentor the children in the movement and steps of the American Indian traditional dance. These weekly immersions into traditional tribal culture and participation in public American Indian gatherings allow us to endure and remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence in the San Diego region. We are fortunate to have volunteers to share their dance and song experience and truly blessed to have children eager to have a good time doing Indian things.

We invite you to bring your children and family to learn by observation and participation, a traditional way, the pow wow dance, music and also enjoy the friendship of the gatherings.
