Thumbs up Natives in Olympic Opening

There's going to be NDN's involved in the Grand opening of the winter Olympics. There's dancers, singers and dignitaries from the five tribes of Utah going to be there.

Look for Sadie Buck from the Six Nations of the Grand River singing at the opening.:)

It's so cool to know somebody doing something at the Olympics.

Those of you who know tradish dancer Carmen, watch for her. She'll be there too!

Last night at the Sweet Hearts Pow-Wow, I heard that NIVA, (NorthWest Indian Veterans Association) was going to be involved with two ceremonies. They are partaking in a ceremony to honor Buddy Mills, (I think that is what they said.) He is a former NDN gold medal winner for those who don't know. So much NDN representation is great! :p

Hi Rainwoman - Billy Mills is the name of the gold medal winner. He won it in the 10,000 meter run, in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He is a member of the Oglala Lakota nation. He is currently the spokesman for "Running Strong For American Indian Youth. A project of Christian Relief Services. www.christianrelief.org

Clangfancy07 you asked, "when is the olympics, what time?"
the opening ceremonies are on Friday night 2/8, at 8:00 pm easter standard time on NBC.

My husband told me CNN just showed the torch being passed in Utah by Natives in full regelia.

I'm gonna get me some :15: and spend Friday night in front of the TV I think this is SOOOOOOOO COOL! :dancer:

I have some friends involved too!

A dance team will be involved in the olympic festivities from Wiconi Int'l Ministries. Some of you may know Richard Twiss, and Dan LaPlant, or maybe Robert Soto. I'm not sure if Robert or Richard will be there, but I know Dan will...

This is too cool!
