Red Lake To Host Sixth Annual Gathering of Elders


The 2015 Elder Queen and King, Mindimooye Susan Johnson and Akiwenzii Willie Strong.

Anishaa (Just for Fun) will make up much of the agenda when Red Lake hosts it's Sixth Annual Gathering of Elders at Seven Clans Casino (Red Lake) on Monday and Tuesday, May 9 – 10, 2016. The event will include informational booths on tribal programs and services available for elders.

An important part of the Gathering has been to provide a venue for youth and elders to interact and learn from each other. Red Lake young people will mix with their elders as volunteers, and providing information and entertainment.

The event begins with registration on Monday morning at 8. At 9 a.m. Spiritual Elder Eugene Stillday will offer the invocation, followed by drum songs by Red Lake Nation Singers, and then a welcome and opening remarks by Chairman Darrell G. Seki, Sr.

Information will be provided to elders by the various tribal program directors. Sessions on the agenda include: Dementia Awareness, Working with Social Security, Healthy Lifestyles, and Gardening Tips.

All elders 55+ are invited, meals will be provided.
