Whistling Elk visits the OYA/Oregon Youth Authorities

Some of our relations,local Southern Oregon Native peoples, have been working with the OYA for more than sixteen years. Members of the Local Native Veteran's Society, Founders of the Grants Pass Indian Center and the Whistling Elk Drum returned for a visit with the OYA. The Staff over there make us feel right at home when we visit, the way they look after us, and we always feel welcome. The Drum has visited several times now over the years.

R.E.D. takes Native Games to Coos Tribal youth

Last week, over Spring Break, a group of shinny players representing R.E.D. traveled over to the Coos Tribe to teach a group of kids how to play shinny (our adopted game of stickball). The invitation from the Coos Tribe came some months ago, after the gifting of a set of shinny sticks to the Coos Title VII Program (Indian Education) at last year's Elder/Youth Conference.
