Can you provide official hyperlinks for this event, so we know which group, or "who" is sponsoring this event? Just a bit more background info would be appreciated,thanks!

There is not a web site for the group yet. The web site for the campground where the event will be held is http://cedarlakeil.com/.

We are a group of friends that have all met each other at native american spiritual ceremonies such as Sun Dance. We live in the local area and we were wanting to get something started to share and promote native culture. In southern Illinois other than the pow wow at SIU in Carbondale there is not anything else that is growing or supporting a native community. We started meeting at the beginning of this year and put our heads together on what we should do. The Creator pointed in the direction of helping feed the community. This made perfect sense because of how badly the economy in the area has been hit by the recession. Local food banks are frequently running out of food because of the need there. The tornadoes this spring that flattened Harrisburg, Il did not help either.

The location of the event has changed. The new location is at the Stonefort Reunion Grounds in Stonefort, Illinois which is easily located on Hwy 45.
