Soaring Eagles: Live Native American Heritage

By Roy Cook


sendrum11211This is Native American Heritage month and the Soaring Eagle dance workshop, Wednesday November 2, 2011 enjoy a welcome gathering at Ballard Parent Center in Old Town. This evening we had two drums to sing traditional Indian songs and Chuck Cadotte mentored the children as they danced traditional dance categories. This too, was a good night with good food and good songs.

SCAIR Senior Advisor, Randy Edmonds provided the blessing for the meal and announced the passing of Los Coneyos Tribal Elder, Katherine Saubel. He asked for all the Soaring Eagles to include her, her family and all those in need of prayer.

The pot luck meal response is community empowerment in action. It is very important, without outside organization support for the food, to remember to bring a potluck item or side dish for the Soaring Eagles evening feast. It is our Indian way to share with the whole community.

SOARING EAGLE WORKSHOP SCHEDULE, 6:30-8:30pm: Nov. and Dec., 2011 (Note: not all are on Wednesday! See you and your family at the workshop and remember to bring the pot luck dishes too.)

We invite you to bring your children and family to learn by observation and participation in a traditional way. There were familiar faces missing and new faces this evening but a fine time and a great birthday cake was enjoyed by all!


We feel that many San Diego American Indian pow wow trails lead to the Old Town location and the Soaring Eagles.

Finally, we felt very good that this evening there is again a spirit of harmony and balance. This is a quality that we look and strive toward in the dance circle.


Everyone is welcome to attend the dance workshop. The Indian children are our priority and our Indian culture future. Come on down for the pow wow dance, music and also enjoy the friendship of the gatherings.
