New places- new faces.

Oak Park elementary school auditorium, just west of 54th street, is the new location for the Title 7 Parents meetings and crafts classes. We could see inter-generational, grandparents, parents, grandchildren, participation of many familiar families and also many new faces coming into the Indian Education circle. There were good acoustics for lots of screams! Also, there is plenty of open parking available.

The Harvest-Halloween Children’s’ party is a combined effort of San Diego Indian organizations: San Diego Indian Education, San Diego Indian Clinic, Indian Human Resource Center, San Diego TONKAWA Indian Elders, and the San Diego Intertribal singers.

Indian Children in costume in all age categories are well represented:

In addition to bags of candy there is good Potluck harvest fare: Hot dogs, home made macaroni salad, potato salad, chili beans, Nachos, pickles, pizzas and pies, cookies cake along with pop, coffee, punch and tea were all enjoyed by the parents, visitors and most importantly the children!





Fun games featured prizes for the winners:
Lollipop tree.
Basketball hoops challenge.
Beanbag toss.
Musical chairs.
Haunted house.

Lots of gypsies eager to have palms red!


San Diego Volcan Mt. Intertribal singers ‘down to the bones” sang round dance songs at the cakewalk for their pies and pizza.

Ghosts, goblins and Yoda scooted into the night by 9pm. Happy and smiling with their loot in hand or in their tummy!







This was a really fun night to be with Tribal families, together in harmony.
