The wedding will have Native drummers, dancers, story tellers and vendors.

There will also be on hand a live wolf for everyone to view and also for educational purposes.

Our purpose and goal is to bring people together, to teach the Native American culture, the customs, and traditions of our people to our children. It is important to pass this on so these ways will not be forgotten.

We welcome all nations and tribes and those who have no Indian her itage but want to learn.

Please contact me for more information.
