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. The word for this month is U na do da qua s gv (pronounced oo nah doh dah kwah ss guh) – Sunday. Yep it is gonna be a month of Sundays! We will be practicing a day of the week for the next 7 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 dixonzoo@aol.com. The auction will end at noon July 5th. Thank you and Good luck!
