Champion Hoop Dancer Waya Dimalanta Scheduled to appear at Frederick, MD Pow-Wow (Schedule and Discount Flier Attached)

Press Release

FREDERICK, MARYLAND POW-WOW SCHEDULED FOR MAY 2012:
Champion Hoop Dancer Waya Dimalanta Scheduled to appear
Frederick Fairgrounds, 797 E. Patrick Street, Frederick, MD 21705

Hollister, NC- Pow-Wow, an American Indian owned and operated company, will sponsor the Frederick , Maryland American Indian Pow-Wow and Show at the E-Eventplex at the Frederick Fairgrounds ( 797 E. Patrick Street Frederick , MD 21705 ) on May 19-20, 2012. The Pow-Wow is an opportunity for the public to interact with American Indian dancers, singers, drummers, artists and craftspersons. This event is an attempt by Pow-Wow to educate the public about American Indians, past and present, through the arts.

Champion Hoop Dancer Waya Dimanlanta (Lumbee/Haliwa Tribe) will perform at the Frederick, Maryland pow-wow daily. Native American Hoop Dance is a form of storytelling incorporating anywhere from one to 30 hoops as props, which are used to create shapes, or formations, representing various animals, symbols, and storytelling elements. It is generally performed by a solo dancer with many hoops.

During the dance, shapes are formed in storytelling ritual such as the butterfly, the eagle, the snake, and the coyote, with the hoop symbolizing the never-ending circle of life. Native American Hoop dance focuses on very rapid moves, and the construction of hoop formations around and about the body. In elaborate sequences of moves, the hoops are made to interlock, and in such a way they can be extended from the body of the dancer to form appendages such as wings and tails. The hoops are often handmade by the dancers out of simple plastic piping (though some are made of wood) and wrapped in colorful tapes.

The pow-wow is an opportunity for the public to interact with American Indian dancers in regalia (outfits), singers, drummers, artists, and crafts persons. American Indian actor Apesanahkat (Menominee) will participate in the pow-wow Saturday and Sunday. His films include: “ Sioux City ”, “Dudes”, “Bagdad Café” and “Dark Horizon”. His television works include: “ Babylon 5”, “ Walker , Texas Ranger”, “Northern Exposure” and so much more.

On Saturday, gates will open at 11:00AM, and the event will kick off with a parade of nations (grand entry) at 12:00 noon. Tribes will be represented at this year’s event, and they include: Haliwa-Saponi, Piscataway, Chickahominy, Rappahannock, Cherokee, Sioux, Iroquois, Lumbee, Hopi, Mattaponi , Nansemond, Choctaw, Navajo, and other Tribes and nations.

Fun activities for children include: Storytelling, pony rides, face painting, tipi visit, bow ‘n’arrow shooting and Firedancer Juan Salinas of the Aztec Dancers.

The public will be able to purchase some of the finest Native American crafts available. Items for sale include turquoise jewelry, moccasins, beadwork, rugs, books, paintings and dreamcatchers to name a few. Buffalo stew, fried bread, Indian corn soup and buffalo burgers are just a few of the Native American food items that will be on sale at the event.

Admission to the Pow-Wow is as follows: Saturday –Sunday: Ages 3-12: $5:00 Ages 13-up: $8.00.

For more information regarding the pow-wow, please call the show promoter at (252) 532-0821 or send e-mail to: powwow@vance.net This is not a web-site.

Navajo Nation State of the Union Address

Direct from the Navajo Nation Washington Office

Navajo Nation SealNavajo Nation President Ben Shelly showed unity today by showcasing the work Vice President Rex Lee Jim has been doing for the Navajo Nation during the first day of the Spring Session of the Navajo Nation Council.

Vice President Jim spoke for nearly 20 minutes and delivered the State of the Nation almost entirely in Navajo.

Though Vice President Jim spoke mostly in Navajo, he followed the English written State of the Nation, and his speech outlined some of the initiatives the administration and Vice President Jim have accomplished and are working toward.

Vice President Jim also announced the successful passage of a waiver that saved Indian Health Service and 638 contract health centers as much as $24 million in Medicaid and Medicare funding.

Due to a $1 billion deficit, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer proposed state Medicare and Medicaid cutbacks, but provided a waiver for American Indian tribes in Arizona. The federal government approved her waiver for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS).

“This waiver also means keeping the doors of health care open for 50,000 Navajo people enrolled in AHCCCS,” according to the written speech

Vice President Jim updated the Council about a planned 2012 Navajo Nation Food Policy Summit, in which health leaders would explore solutions with a food policy to address obesity on the Navajo Nation.

The Navajo Department of Health estimates that 40 percent of Navajo people are obese, and obesity is a contributing factor for heart attacks, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

The summit would bring in Navajo culture into the discussion, and explore the spiritual and nutritional role in a historical perspective while using more current data, Vice President Jim said.

Using the written speech, Vice President Jim said “our people are our strength, and we, as leaders, must lead our people to greater prosperity and opportunities, while keeping our culture alive and strong.”

Your Interview with President Obama in the Google+ “Hangout”

DC Update from the Whitehouse

You asked the questions, and President Obama answered in the first-ever completely virtual interview from the White House, presented by YouTube and Google+.

President Barack Obama participates in an interview with YouTube and Google+ to discuss his State of the Union Address, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Jan. 30, 2012. The interview is held through a Google+ Hangout, making it the first completely virtual interview from the White House.

Just after 5:30 PM ET today, President Obama sat down for a discussion with a group of Americans from across the country in a Google+ Hangout. It was the first online conversation to happen at the White House in real time — ever.

Even before the event, more than 227,000 people had taken time to participate — submitting questions for the President to answer or voting for their favorite.

Weekly Address: President’s Blueprint Includes Renewal of American Values

DC Update from the Whitehouse

The White House Your Daily Snapshot for Saturday, January 28, 2012

Weekly Address: President’s Blueprint Includes Renewal of American Values

In his weekly address, President Obama discusses the blueprint he put forward this week in the State of the Union Address for creating an economy built to last. After focusing on American manufacturing, American energy, and skills for American workers during each of the last three days, he used his weekly address to highlight his commitment to a renewal of American values. The President is challenging leaders in Washington, DC to follow the model set by our men and women in the military, end the gridlock and start tackling the issues that matter — without regard for personal ambition.

“President Barack Obama tapes the weekly address and a Voice of America 70th Anniversary message in the East Room of the White House, Jan. 20, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy)”

In Case You Missed It

*State of the Union: *

In his third State of the Union Address [http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/25/president-obama-delivers-2012-state-union] on Tuesday, the President outlined his vision for “an America that lasts”—one that will bring about a new era of American manufacturing, and promote homegrown and alternative energy sources—and presented a bueprint [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/24/blueprint-america-built-last ] to achieve that vision. Check out this video that goes behind the scenes [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/24/2012-state-union-behind-scenes ] as President Obama prepared the speech.

*Blueprint for Manufacturing: *
During his visit to New Hampshire [ www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/27/vice-president-biden-america-coming-back ] following Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Vice President Biden highlighted the Administration’s plan to help businesses bring jobs back to America through manufacturing. He echoed the President’s message that we need to commit to train workers with the skills they will need to compete in the growing sectors of our economy.

*Talking Energy in Las Vegas: *
From a UPS facility in Las Vegas, the President spoke [
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/26/president-obama-discusses-blueprint-american-made-energy ] about the future of American-made energy [
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/26/everything-you-need-know-president-obamas-blueprint-american-made-energy ]. “[Even] with all this oil production, we only have about 2 percent of the world’s oil reserves,” the President said, “So we’ve got to have an all-out, all-in, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every source of American energy—a strategy that is cleaner and cheaper and full of new jobs.”

*#WHchat: *
Throughout the week, more than thirty administration officials have answered questions about President Obama’s State of the Union Address and issues Americans care about through a series of Office Hours on Twitter [
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/26/twitter-office-hours-marathon-state-union twitterverse as @VP—answered questions [ http://storify.com/vp/your-twitter-interview-with-at-vp-biden ] submitted by people across the country in his first-ever Twitter interview [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/26/vice-president-biden-holds-first-twitter-interview ] from an advanced manufacturing facility in Rochester, New Hampshire.

*NHL Champs: *
On Monday, the President welcomed the Boston Bruins [
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/23/president-obama-welcomes-boston-bruins ] to the White House and congratulated them on their Stanley Cup victory in June—marking the team’s sixth Cup championship, and their first one in nearly forty years. Their triumph, the President said, “proved that teamwork is everything.” After their visit to the White House, the players led a hockey clinic–affirming that being a champion doesn’t end when you hang up your skates.

*West Wing Week:*
This week, the President prepared for and delivered his State of the Union Address, welcomed the Boston Bruins to the White House, and took his message West to Iowa, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado. Check out the video [
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/27/west-wing-week-1272012-or-special-state-union-edition-2012 ].
