(Slight difficulty was resolved just prior to event, as the main speaker got sick and a replacement was needed to be found. We advertised this in the event listing, and that may have turned a few people away due to the uncertainty. However, the replacement was a wonderful speaker from a local tribe who spoke and sang, which was a beautiful complement to the crafts and stories. Also shared personal insights and experiences to round out the event.)

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
