Soaring Eagles Dance Out November

By Roy Cook

dancerThis is still Native American Heritage month and the Soaring Eagle dance workshop still continues. The Soaring Eagle program is all about the children. This workshops quality was evident in the initiative, joy, pride of tribal identity and participation from beginning to end of the parents and children of the Soaring Eagles workshop. Thank you all for being there.

Our positive elements of support were there for the benefit of the children Soaring Eagle dance workshop last Tuesday night: Elders. Singers, dance mentors, community announcements, food and folks ready to have a good time doing this thing for the children.



SCAIR Senior Advisor Randy Edmonds delivered the blessing for the food and asked for prayers for those in need. He mentioned our supportive elder Manuel Flores who is recovering at the VA hospital from a coronary on Thanksgiving Day. Frank Gastelum announced details about the CV parade and Emceed the dance workshop since Chuck was in Riverside at the VA doing a presentation. It was good to see Paul Razo on the hoof again since his last knee operation.


The pot luck meal response is very important because without outside organization support for the food and paper goods we need to remember to bring a potluck item or side dish for the Soaring Eagles evening feast. It is our Indian way to invite all to attend an Indian gathering and share with the whole community.


We invite you to bring your children and family to learn by observation and participation in a traditional way. We feel that many San Diego American Indian pow wow trails lead to the Old Town location and the Soaring Eagles.


Finally, we feel very good that 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 Pearl Harbor Veterans day dance workshop. The Indian children are our Soaring Eagle workshop priority and our Indian culture future. Come on down for the pow wow dance, music and also enjoy the friendship of the gatherings.
