To the Editor,
On September 10, 2017, we had a very nice Birthday Party for me at Red Shirt’s Pow Wow grounds. I want to express my gratitude to my cousin Susanna Swallow, and my family. I sure appreciate the fine food they cooked, and to the two girls who sang the “Happy Birthday Song” to me, lila waste’ (very good), and to the rest of my family members and in-laws, for giving me gifts, and more food. Thank you for coming to celebrate with me. A special thanks to Sister Connie for the prayers, and the band for singing songs. I thank you all from the bottom of my (cante’) heart.
