American Indian Warrior Association
September 5, 2012

Taco, taco, tacos are crunchy, munchy, oozy, mom mmh good! Guacamole and salsa hits tonight. Thanks to Joaquin and William. Enjoying the feast and attending are Larry ‘Butch’ Strickland, Joaquin Sandoval, Ozze Monge, AIWA President, William Buchanan and Roy Cook.

The business of the American Indian Warriors Association of September 5, 2012 was called to order at 7:05 pm by AIWA President William Buchanan.

Joaquin Sandoval made a report of the United Veterans Council meeting this month and reported on the past weekend Barona pow wow.

William also attended the Barona pow wow and laid out his views on areas of interest to the AIWA organization- Coins, AIWA cards, metals and vests along with:

1. Volunteerism as Color Guard at Casino pow wows.

2. VA hospice attendance with prayer or spiritual leader.

3. Volunteer presentations at the Sailor and old Soldiers home in Chula Vista.

4. Regalia craft classes at the AIWA meetings(GD bandolier is the first project.)

American Indian historical discussion views from newspaper clippings were reviewed and distributed to the members for further analysis.

Ozze Monge shared his disappointment of the cancellation of the most recent Council of Native American organization meeting: past topics were museum, veterans and the holiday dinners. Insightful discussion and recommendations followed his views.

The Round Robin encourages our Veterans to bring out issues and emotions in a supportive, compassionate, environment. Our goal is that participation will further the healing process and bring us all back into the world of harmony and balance again.

AIWA welcomes positive ideas for the next months’ meeting of October 7, 2012. With the final police call clean up of the area the AIWA meeting adjourned at 8:25pm.

Respectfully submitted:
Roy Cook, AIWA Historian/secretary
