Whistling Elk family had an AMAZING trip to Wisconsin this past summer. We will be sharing more about the journey as we gather our thoughts, photos, journals and memories of the trip. The trip allowed several people to reunite with relatives and homelands, from Wyoming to South Dakota to Minneapolis to Wisconsin. It was a magical time shared and given to the Drum and its singers, and every stop along the way was meaningful and special to us. Much learned, much appreciated about family ties to back home places. Please click "read more" under picture.
Please join the Red Earth Descendants community, Whistling Elk Singers and the multicultural community of Southern Oregon for a rich display of food, art and entertainment from our diverse region.
