Soaring Eagles Blocked Out

By Roy Cook

We did not have a dance workshop this week. But our hearts and the primary goal of the Soaring Eagle program are always the children. Our plans for the next one are February 29, Wednesday. The leap day of the 2012 year! This dance workshops enthusiasm and quality is evident in the initiative, joy, pride of tribal identity and participation. From beginning of the evening to the end the parents and children at the Soaring Eagles Dance Workshop are part of the Traditional American Indian community.

We are all very proud of our Soaring Eagle dancer from the Abel Jacome family: Monica! She will be recognized at the Youth Center Community night on Friday night, 2/24/12. She was selected to be the Wild Horse Pow wow Princess for the next year, CONGRATULATIONS! Enjoy the pictures of her, the pow wow and our last SE workshop too.

Each evening most of our positive Soaring Eagle dance workshop elements of support are there for the benefit of the children: Elders. Singers, dance mentors along with community announcements, food and folks ready to have a good time doing this thing for the children.

Parent and friends participation are very important to the social aspect of the program success. Remember to bring a potluck item or side dish for the Soaring Eagles dance workshop evening feast. It is our Traditional Indian way to practice hospitality and generosity when we invite all to attend an Indian gathering and share the meal with the whole community.
