Native Justice PowWow a Rousing Success
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
The Third Annual Native Justice PowWow was a wonderful event and garnered praise and compliments from those who attended. The drum was strong and the dancers were many. It was particularly great to see Rusty Creed Brown (Head Man Dancer) on the floor with his own father, Kenneth Anderson Brown (Head Gourd Dancer). Also doing an excellent job were the other head staff: Bernice Delorme (Head Lady Dancer), Herb Adson (Head Singer), and Larry Tsosie (Arena Director). Finally we would like to extend a warm round of thanks to Mr. Archie Mason (Master of Ceremonies) without whom this event would not have gone as smoothly as it did nor would it have been possible at all. Thanks to all members of TU NALSA (especially Nicci Small), Oklahoma Indian Legal Services (this year's PowWow honorees), and to the entire Native community who came out to show their support for all of those who work to keep us safe and make sure that justice is being done in Indian Country. Yokoke (Thank you in Choctaw).
