Just a note to say thank you to everyone who attended and supported our cultural week, powwow and annual meeting this past week. I would like to thank our Cultural Committee for coordinating a great week of activities culminated by our trip to Norman, Ok for the opening of the Barbeau Exhibit. This exhibit exceeded all of our expectations and will be on display at the Sam Noble Museum through Thanksgiving. I hope that everyone that possibly can will attend the exhibit. Our 23rd annual powwow was also a great success in spite of the bad weather that forced the cancellation of Friday nights events. Our Powwow Committee and maintenance crew did a wonderful job of making this years powwow one of the best ever. I want to congratulate our newly crowned princesses Emily Wills, senior princess and Veronica Burnside, junior princess they were crowned Saturday afternoon at the powwow and will now begin their reign and I know will represent us well. Also, a special thank you to our outgoing princess Courtney Glass-Chavez for representing so well for last several years. In closing I would like to say “tizameh” to all of our citizens who attended our annual meeting for our State of the Nation Address. We were able to report what has been one of our greatest years to date. Beginning January 1st we roll out for the very first time in our history a nationwide health benefit for every Wyandotte Tribal Citizen regardless of where you reside. This is a three million dollar program that will provide a $1000 benefit to each head of household and $2000 for each Wyandotte household with more than one tribal citizen. You will be receiving more info in the mail and through the Turtle Talk.
