Not only is our planning committee comprised of volunteers, but the conducting of the day-long Ceremonial Celebration with stage performers and speakers, vendors, and individuals who watch over our children and elders takes many, many hands and hearts to accomplish.

We also host other events throughout the year leading up to the event.

In other words, we need YOU! The more the merrier. It takes a village!
