Soaring Eagles Celebrate Spring

By Roy Cook

We had a fine dance workshop this Wednesday March 7, 12 night. But our hearts and the primary goal of the Soaring Eagle program are always the children. 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 Soaring Eagle parent board, parents and children at the Soaring Eagles Dance Workshop are part of the Traditional American Indian community.

We are all pleased that our Soaring Eagle dancer Dylan Allrunner, Cheyenne, as he was gifted a Southern Plains strait dance regalia. The outfit was made by David and Keri Gloria and gifted to him at no charge. Randy Edmonds announced that he would be formally brought into the arena at the San Diego State pow wow.

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, potluck: meat loaf, rice, green salad and pizza. Later we had Irish themed cupcakes 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.
