UNITY at the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation Orme Dam Victory Days Pow Wow & Celebration!
On Sunday, November 19, 2018, UNITY was honored to host a UNITY “Youth Enrichment” Special for All-Categories in Fort McDowell, Arizona. The special honored and recognized Native youth in the powwow circle, and the winners of the special were Tia Lone Tree Grey (HoChunk/Dine) and RJ Teevter (Mandan/Hidatsa).
We appreciate the assistance of the pow wow head staff, our speaker Ken Duncan Sr, arena director, and tribal council for supporting and allowing us to host this special. We send our greatest appreciation to the host southern drum group Cozad for singing for this special, as the Cozad drum group comes from UNITY’s birth state of Oklahoma.
The two winners of the special received a limited edition UNITY Commemorative Pendleton Blanket, complimentary registration to the 2018 UNITY Midyear Conference, and cash award. We look forward to seeing our Youth Enrichment winners at the 2018 UNITY Midyear Conference in Tempe, Arizona.
