Honoring Our Traditions Through Song and Dance

 

Honoring Our Traditions Through Song and Dance

On August 4th, 2011, the Red Lake Urban Office in Duluth, MN made history by having the first Native float in the Spirit Valley Days Parade in over fifty years. It was Awesome! Our Red Lake Royalty was invited to participate, but due to hard economic times only two were able to make it (Alice Seki and Carter Dow). Thanks Guys! We had about 10 dancers and they proudly represented Red Lake and the Urban Office. Many times we heard that all the native people that were in attendance were so proud to be Native that day.

We want to thank everyone that helped pull this together and make it a success; Robert Fineday, dancers, singers and everyone who helped decorate the float. You know who you are!

We hope to make this an ongoing yearly event and we are open to ideas, but I really don’t know how we will top this one. As that old saying goes, Totally Totally Awesome...

Chi Miigwitch again to everyone who helped.
