On October 3rd, Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa is hosting the first ever (but to be annual) Tribal Disabilities Conference. The theme this year is “The World of Disabilities” and I am super-excited because I am going to be giving the keynote address along with my long-time friend and business partner, Dr. Erich Longie.
There’s no real point to this post except that I’m happy to be invited to speak at this historic event, and I’m also excited to see my friend and other long-time colleague, Willie Davis, again. There are rumblings and rumors that some other old friends of mine may be in the vicinity as well. I’ve read that as people get older, marry, raise children, their friendships are less important to them. In my case, it’s the opposite. I’ve been through a lot of twists and turns in my life, and the older I get, the more I value the people who have been with me a long part of the path.
If you are in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Manitoba or Saskatchewan, you’re not a very far drive away and it probably won’t be snowing yet. Come on down, stay at the Sky Dancer and come hear some really good speakers.
