At the bigger powwows in Indian Country, bigger is not always better. Todays dance was a reminder
that sometimes the smallest gatherings are the most meaningful, what made today special is seeing our Native youth carry on our traditions, good jobs to their parents for instilling their wisdom in them.
The Wauneka Dorm had a cupcake sale, if I wasn't pre-diabetic I would have gotten one.
