  1. Hello and hello to all.

    I was just looking for information on this weekends pow wow and happy to have found it. I just have a couple of thoughts respectively about your web site.

    The dialogue would be easier to read if it were a bit larger and perhaps spaced out a bit more, it would keep interest for readers. Maybe break it up a bit and add links to the integral information.

    Some color and indications of where to find particular bits of information would be helpful. Also, it would be really, really cool to have a continuous slide show of activities at the pow wow like the dancing and drumming, that’s what people want to see and it would peak their interest in being a part of an important cultural event.

    Pow wows help to foster education, respect, interest in the Native American community. If you don’t show us, how will we know since our ancestors tried to make sure we never knew you?

    I respectfully thank you for hearing me.

    Taylor Drew Kelly
