Howka tribal members.. I was just sent this link from the American Indian Library Association emails. Thought our tribal members might enjoy looking around the site and seeing what they have that came from Santa Ysabel.
National Museum fo the American Indian Collections Search - The National Museum fo the Amercan Indian has a program whose goal is to digitize all 800,000+ item in their collection; 5,500+ are currently available. You can search by "People/Cultures", "Artists/Individuals", "Places", or "Object Specifics" (which consists to these choices: "Archeolgocial Items", "Ethnographic Items", "Modern and Contemporary Arts", "Photographic Collections", and "All of the Above Categories"). There is also an "Advanced Search" tool.

Howka tribal members,
For those of you that don't know I am the leader of Nations of the 4 Directions which is a 2 spirit Native American Lesbian and Gay support group. There are 2 events that some 2 spirit tribal members might want to participate in.
July 18th is Gay pride parade in San Diego and we will be marching. I am hoping other 2 spirit tribal members might want to come down to the city and participate. If you would like to march with us please email me (Karen)at the email below. email@example.com
Also July 23-26 is the 2nd Annual 2 spirit native women's gathering in San Diego at the girl scout camp. I am looking for speakers to conduct workshops, teach how to do basketry and other cultural things. The event is free and open to all 2 spirit Native women and their non native partners and children. Please email me if you are interested.

Howka brothers and sisters, as you know many of our tribal members suffer from heart issues and or have heart transplants... I thought maybe tribal members might want to participate in this event being held at the Oceanside Pier on April 26th. The Cardiovascular Disease Foundation is hosting a 5K Walk & Free Health Fair from 8:00am-2:00pm Cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure screenings will be offered at no charge.
Kids 12 and under walk free – many organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs are forming walking teams to bring some attention to childhood obesity and the importance of exercise. I think it would be great to rally together a walking group to represent our reservations in support of this event.
This is a great cause and directly relates to many of the challenges we face with our own families. What better way to fight cardiovascular disease then to get the whole family out and walking toward health.
