13th Karuk Tribal Reunion Coming
The 13th Annual Karuk Tribal Reunion is coming Saturday August 29th! Come on down to the Happy Camp River Park where you can sit in the shade of the trees by the riverbank and enjoy the day. Of course, if you want to get active, there will be a 5K Fun Walk and a Fun Run, traditional card games, and an obstacle course & water-slide for the kids AND Adults who are brave.
See Robert A. Goodwin to compete in the Horseshoe Tournament. Ellen Joyhnoson is the contact for cribbage games. Doug Goodwin will arrange the Poker Tournament. Arch Super will be in charge of the Volleyball Tournament. Then, when you’ve played, you can stop by the Health Fair before going to the food booths. Now, don’t fill up on Indian tacos, hot dogs and cheeseburgers because Acorn Soup and the Salmon Dinner will happen at 3:30 or so. Other vendors will be having crafts, jewelry and art items for your pleasure. There will be a demonstration Brush Dance.
Even though the day will likely be hot, bring your own umbrella chair and you’ll have a comfortable place to rest and visit with old friends and family. All vendors are welcome. For a wonderful time with the family, come on down to the River Park and celebrate “Chimi ikriva koovura pa’ararakuuphaveenati” (Hold Onto Our Heritage.) For further information contact Sara Spence at 493-1600 ext 2010. This is a drug and alcohol free event.
