It is hard to believe how much work goes into making these videos. Thank you AMRV RC&D for providing the funding needed to work on this project and thank you to The Purple Tie Guys Robert Martin and Blake Singleton for doing such a great job on producing this video. We hope to add this video to our homepage (by clicking on About) but until then just click on the link before and it should take you to the video. Enjoy!
We have another item up for auction this month. It is a tomahawk donated by our Vice Chief Lowrey Hesse. We are asking a minimum bid $50.00. You can bid by emailing me at email@example.com. The money from the auction of this item will go directly into our land savings trust fund. If you are the winning bidder and this item must be mailed to you, you will need to mail a check in the amount of your bid and include an addition $15.00 for shipping. It will not be mailed until payment is received. The auction will end November 1, 2019 at 12 noon. Good luck.
Thanks to Sherman Dobson for sharing the information with us about this wonderful company that is offering another fundraising opportunity for our tribe. We are so close to having the money needed to purchase the land but still have a ways to go because of closing fees and additional funding that will be needed to start the work necessary to set up a temporary office. Then the next phase of the fundraising will begin if we are to have a permanent office with additional rooms for our fellowship hall, classrooms for crafting and language classes, a storefront and museum as well. We have many talented individuals in professions that will aid us in this process and they have generously offered their services to help with this effort. Please share this link with all your friends and family. Send it through all your social media accounts as well as email. Using this link will allow your friends and family to purchase the products they want and have them mailed directly to them. A portion of each purchase will go into an account for our tribes fundraiser. We will receive 40% from all purchases made through this link over the next 365 days. Please, please, please, do your part and get this out there. We can’t achieve our goals without your help. It is because of the efforts of all of you that we have made it this far, now let’s rock this fundraiser and make our dreams a reality! All funds received through this fundraiser will go directly into our land savings fund. The link to follow to shop with Rada Cutlery and help our tribal family reach their goal is:
Thank you for all your support.
We are continuing to make an effort to learn our language. There are some who were never introduced to our ancestral language so learning it is quite a struggle. In our efforts to learn we are picking a word to practice and making it a part of our morning/daily prayers on Facebook. We are also branching out and trying to include it in a monthly post here on our website. Well, that was our intentions, but guess who forgot to post it until the end of the month.
Our word for the month of August has been U na do da quo nv hi (pronounced oo nah doh dah kwoh nuh hee) – Monday. It has been a month of U na do da quo nv hi! Here’s hoping I can get my act together and get our Word of the Month posted for September at the beginning of the month instead of at the end. Be patient with me, I am a work in progress.
We will be practicing a day of the week for the next 5 months and then plan to move on to learning the word for the months for the next 12 months. Come learn with us. -Chief Judy Dixon

New item up for auction is a large collection of Football, Baseball and Basketball cards. There are over 3,000 Football cards in the box. There are 591 Baseball cards and 800 Basketball cards. There are even a few valued at $5.00 each. These cards were donated by Scotie Hardy. Bidder needs to be able to pick these up at the office located at 1531 Blount Avenue (across from ACE Hardware) Guntersville or be willing to pay a high shipping cost. I haven’t taken these to the post office for a price check on postage but have enough experience with postage to know it would run about $20 or $30 to mail these. If you are the winning bid and need them to be mailed to you I will price the postage and it will be added to the bid amount. All proceeds with the exception of any shipping fees will go into our land savings trust fund. To bid email your bid to email@example.com. The auction will end at noon July 5th. Thank you and Good luck!
