American Indian Warrior Association

September 5, 2013

This evening AIWA President William Buchanan opened the meeting at 7:20pm with lots of tacitos sabrositos with guacamole, salsa red or green. Boom, we started right off with business talk about the issues of organization, crafts and events. Juan del Rio reported that the Bayside meeting location is stable and we may utilize more aspects of the service possibilities; yes on postal mail drop, in process exclusive meeting location on the master schedule and pending is umbrella 501c3 participation under Bayside. Joaquin S. will provide financial status for consideration.

Old Business:

1. Continue to contact past members and recruit new Veterans to be members of AIWA. A social potluck is in the planning stages.

2. The goal of producing a Children non-contest pow wow is in the dream stage.

3. Blankets and vests are in process and we anticipate that we may have access to them for the Sycuan pow wow.

4. Our crafts classes date has been reassigned to the end of this month 9/29/13 at 10 am and so far, still at the Lake Murray location.

Summer time is pow wow time and the AIWA Warriors continue to participate in local opportunities such as last week-ends Barona pow wow.

New business:

1. Added regalia for image enhancement; hats, more gourd dance gear.

2. Return of smudging, prayer and role of the medicine wheel or cardinal directions in selected tribes.

AIWA closed the meeting at 8:55pm.

Finally, AIWA welcomes our local and Tribal involvements and our mission to continue to be of service to the community and look forward to positive ideas for our future months’ meetings.
