Wisconsin Native American veterans gathering

Wisconsin Native American veterans activities. I wonder what they think of Ward Churchill? The Highground's background and meaning can be found at The Highground :: Veterans Memorial Park :: Home Page

GATHERING OF VETERANS POW WOW 2004
For the first time in years, a September sun switched places
with the rain providing 3 days of delightful weather for
this celebration. On the first day, over 800 students from
schools throughout central Wisconsin participated in a
variety of activities that included an hour with a Native
American storyteller, taste tests of buffalo chili and fry
bread, tours of a council house, sweat lodge, long house,
and Great Plains teepee, presentations of Native American
artifacts, and demonstrations of Native American dance
highlighted by a young and talented Hoop dancer.
This was followed by a somber ritual of the reading of
the names of those Missing In Action from 6 states punctuated
by the songs of Native Americans and the voice of
their drum.
Two days of dance, feasts, and offerings of Native
American crafts, pottery, and jewelry followed. Winners of
the raffle items were Dorothy Chapek, Linda Zickert, Jay
Beisenstein, and Jo Ann Kessler. Winners of the baskets
were Al Thomas, Paul Corette, Dave King, Mick Boll,
Chalrene Lyons, and Katlin Raab.
Next year, changes are expected for the GOV. Committee
chairs, Al and Esther Sayas, felt they needed to cut back on
their involvement. Their resignation was accepted by the
Highground Board and provisions were made for the staff to
explore the possibility of new organizers.
A Gathering in 2005 remains unscheduled and will
depend on the willingness of others to accept leadership
positions.
