The concert portion ran late into the night and the Committee would
like to thank all of the people who stayed and enjoyed both the
speakers and entertainers.
The Committee also
sends their thanks to people who supported us in their own ways, but
were unable to be in attendance for various reasons. Wayquay (all our
love), Sandy Flye, Tom Black Feather, Leland Little Dog, Edgar Bear
Runner, Marquetta Peltier, and all the others who could not make it,
we wish you well and hope to see you at next year's event.
