July 10-11, 1999 "Sagakwa" Twin Mountain, N.H. Pow-wow Event

This (retrospectively-speaking) 7th Annual Native American Cultural Weekend (according to the newspaper article) for the first time in its history, the event was officially recognized by Governor Jeanne Shaheen. According to event founder and Cultural Director Nancy Cruger, the proclamation officially recognizes Sagakwa '99, Native American Cultural Weekend and the Abenaki Native Peoples of New Hampshire whose diverse cultural history dates back some 10,000 years. In the proclamation, Gov. Shaheen also recognizes Abenaki Native Americans' many contributions to this state. The proclamation was presented and read by State Representative Mike Gilman of Littleton prior to the opening ceremonies last Saturday morning. Yet another Governor's Proclamation's for Nancy's living-room wall, that she can point at to any visitor stupid enough not to sharp to have realized that the piece of paper belongs not on the living room wall, but rather hanging above the bathroom toilet!
I figured I might as well put the late "past Odanak Chief" Walter Watso's photograph here too, since in the newspaper in this post, it appears he was wearing the same headress, necklace, and buckskin fringed shirt.
