Marvelously skillful hoop dance presentation by Kevin Locke with singing by four young men from Ashinabe Reserve in Manitoba. Finally the evening was brought to a fine finish with a wonderful traditional performance by a large group of women and male Pomo dancers in regalia. To them, and all who shared the richness of our Tribal cultures, as the singers said, we give a big appreciative, Ooooh!
We thank the committee for all their hard work and the invitation to be a small part of this event. Thank you, Aho, Mehan.
