                            I wanted to publicly thank the powwow committee for having me back again this year. Even though the weather was hit-and-miss, I think things went well... Good turn-out, good singing... And GREAT PEOPLE up there. Nim, Courtney, Chief Chris Plain, Ponchie, and everybody else, THANK YOU...
