    I am not sure who or what business is responsible for throwing this. But who ever you are let me thank you for continuing the Wild West Show tradition furthering the commercialization, rape and further derascinization of traditionals and the traditional culture and spirit of our people. Thank you for the misrepresentation and disrespect of our ceremony’s and traditions by non-traditional native blooded ACTORS and MODELS/MUSICIANS and those who do not know any better, all in the name of monetary gain, commercial enterprise, and vender profiteering. Further driving our people and our children deeper into the vacuous abyss of lies, cultureless-ness and lost-ness and the snuffing out of the flame of our peoples spirit that the creator gave us to maintain and keep. To whatever business or man or woman who is behind this “fest” and to the indian-blooded models/actors/musicians who are involved in this I must say this, when you are counting your bill folds ask yourself if something so meaningless and covered in the faces of our peoples destroyers and occupiers. is it worth the soul of your/our people, or the blood of your ancestors and our children, the weight of their cries and screams and suffering. We as a people are about to be completely wiped out. Snuffed out like an unwanted ember, without spirit, AND WITHOUT CULTURE, BLOOD MEANS NOTHING, AND IS NOTHING. Those of you who are involved in this with the best of intentions or love for our people, if you really want to help our people, if you really want to spread light in the indian community and help our people, take that same $45-$169 and burn it, or spend it on stamps and write The Judiciary Committee U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Congress to Conduct a full investigation into the FBI misconduct on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and the case of Leonard Peltier.

  9. Osiyo to you all,
    I was at the doctors yesterday, the 18th of September and I have not been released yet after a major back operation. This was my 4th one and there are no more fixes for me so I have to do everything correctly so I can live a more normal life I hope for many years to come. I will miss you all and please keep me in your prayers as I am healing. I will be back for next year with some new tings and CD releases. I will be having a new Signature Flute being released real soon with some neat things witch will be different and great to add to your flute collection. Have a new CD out – “One People”. New Web site in the works. CD will soon be available on my site and CD-baby, I-Tunes, and many other places.

  13. Moses Brings Plenty was an artist who appeared last year and, as an honored and respected Native American Artist, we are pleased to have his photo included in our collage.

  14. Larry, TYCOR Community Development Corporation Inc. is a 501 (c) not for profit with a 51% board compliment comprised of Native American Indians. Since there has been no money to take in for the first three events, it is a moot point. However, this is a 100% all volunteer organization that is striving to develop the Osage Trail Station Neighborhood (Troost Avenue from 31st Street to Linwood Boulevard specifically) to a place where American Indian artists are able to house their businesses as well as have living quarters. We do have the White Buffalo Scholarship Fund which has sent a number of students to training at Rockhurst University so they may develop community leadership skills. If you would like further information, don’t hesitate to contact us.

  15. Iron Jacket: I am Teresa Bradskey, Miami of Oklahoma, a federally recognized tribe, and I founded the event in conjunction with a 501 (c) not for profit entity. I have an Indian name which I choose not to share to prevent sterotyping. I have been involved in American Indian Activism and non-discrimination since the 80’s and am 65 years old. With this information in mind, I would like for you to understand that the purpose of this event is to break sterotypes by hosting an event that allows for only those artists that conform to the 1990 American Indian Arts and Crafts Act. Residing, however, in a mid-city urban area with no Tribes or Nations located in the entire State of Missouri allows us to “share” culture and recognize our community as a whole. We thank you for sharing your feelings and we are sorry that you feel that we have not yet achieved that purpose. If you would like to discuss this further or serve with our all volunteer group to express your concerns, we invite you to do so.
