Blackfeet Succession Meeting

April 7th, 2014 by Steve Ritthamel

The mighty Blackfeet met at the watering hole to enjoy the fresh air of the evening, share stories of the year’s events, and discuss the succession of leadership for the 2013-2014 season.

Chief Dances with Fish offered the peace pipe to Chief Elect, and interested candidates for Assistant Chief were reviewed and left for Steps on Frogs to take to heart and decide the future Assistant.

All in attendance had well exercised elbows and empty cups by the end of the meeting.

Blackfeet Chiefs meeting

April 2nd, 2014 by Steve Ritthamel

Noonway -

The Blackfeet leadership met on the last day of March for a review of the year and recommendations for the future. With Tribal leaders Chief Emeritus Lucky Tiger, Chief Dances with Fish, and Chief-elect Steps on Frogs in attendance, much was shared and recalled, and new ideas for solidarity and friendship building were put into action.

Memories of campouts, red cups, movies, skating, Tonkas, war games, parades and more provided much laughter for the Braves in attendance.  Preparations for the last Campout and Water Park Day were discussed over firewater and brats.

With the 2013-2014 season nearly concluded, Lucky Tiger made official his retirement. He will be sorely missed. His special talents and skills began a tradition of doing things “The Blackfeet Way” in the 2011-2012 season and it has become a firmly rooted value we instill on all new members and recruits. Thank you Chief Lucky Tiger for your leadership, drive, and fellowship. He and all alumni are welcome to join in on our activities at any time.

With the end of a season comes the passing of the peace pipe to the Blackfeet’s new leader – Chief-elect Steps on Frogs – who has been anxiously awaiting and preparing for his new role as Chief. He has much support and talent from both Braves and Princesses to continue the tradition of doing things The Blackfeet Way. Your creativity, wit, humor, and desire to be your best will lead the Tribe well next season. We all wish you the best of luck and pledge our support for next season.

Another Blackfeet Chief Emeritus – Hungry Bear – also assumes the role of Nation Chief for the 2014-2015 season, and his squaw is by his side and ready to assist our new Fox Nation Chief in his duties. The Blackfeet wish you much fun and success in the upcoming season and stand ready to assist in whatever ways we can.

Outgoing Nation Chief Bald Eagle also officially held his last Chief’s Meeting, and his leadership, enthusiasm, and desire to take the Nation to a new level has resulted in many memories and good spirits amongst all members. His Squaw – Runs with Mud – will also be sorely missed. Her input, organization and coordination of many aspects of the Nation’s activities were an integral part of the Nation’s successes. Thank you to Nation Chief & Squaw for many years of memories.

Special thanks go out to all the Blackfeet, both Braves & Princesses, and all the other Tribes of the Nation for making THIS Chief’s season an amazing one. I am proud and honored to have been your Chief this year, and look forward to the next season of making memories that will last a lifetime.

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Kelly Park

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

The Mighty Iroquois Princesses and Braves took to the forest where they soon discovered the age-old pigment of the flower. With this discovery each Princess and Brave laid their mark upon the hide of the mighty Bear and signed their Indian Names. To cool off on the hot day our Princesses and Braves made their way to the natural spring where they used the magical air filled tube from the mystical rubber tree and floated along the ancient passage through Kelly Park.

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Wickham Park

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

Along the sun drenched shores of Florida, there lies a camping site, teaming with new discoveries. Our Princesses evoked the mighty satellites of the sky to guide them with precision to find these hidden treasures. With the help and support of the Braves, these princesses discovered hidden Cache, within the native surroundings. Only a short distance away, along the buffalo’s path, the might blue ocean meets the shore. Here is where our Princesses and Braves challenged the sea, made new friends and even created etchings within the sand.

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Christmas Parade

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

High atop the Polar Express our courageous Princesses braved the 80-degree weather for the annual Winter Garden Christmas Parade. Clad in their pajamas and armed with no less than 10-pounds of candy each, these warriors set off on the parade route to banish the Grinch and bring sugar laden smiles to the children of the village. From the building of the float to the singing of Christmas tunes, a great time was had by all!

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Roper Camp

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

In the center of Florida is a small island of citrus. In the bitter cold of winter these sugary fruits sweeten and draw campers from high and low. The island is bereft of running water, working toilets, electricity and flat land. With this draw, all the Iroquois could not resist the appeal, however. Though the numbers were small, those mighty Princesses and Braves who foraged the surrounding area for timber were happy to be among the exclusive club. Seven trees were chopped and sawed into firewood to endure the 30-degree nights and Mighty Blue Star awoke to stoke the fire throughout the night.

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Florida Eco.

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

The Great Spirit of the Heart blessed the Mighty Iroquois at Florida Eco. As the full moon rose over the camp on St. Valentine’s Day, the many Princesses were awed to see a 16-foot heart being stood by their Braves. This tribute would stand throughout the night, bringing great anticipation fro the Tonka to come. Since the Iroquois channeled the mighty Sprit of the Heart for Tonka, The Iroquois also sought not only the hearts of the Princesses but the hearts of the braves as well. With the smoking of the rib of the boar and the baking of the apple, the Mighty Iroquois won, not only the hearts of the Braves, but the Golden Spatula as well.

Iroquois – Smoke Signal – Family Camp

March 31st, 2014 by Garrett Stump

 

As strong as the bond is between Brave and Princess, so is the bond between the Squaw and Tribal Families. At the Ranch of the River, many tribal families gathered; 180 members in all. A community kitchen was constructed where many Chiefs, Braves and Princesses helped to prepare a mighty feast. Much fun was to be had among the native land. Archery, Fishing, Mechanical Bull Riding and the pursuit of the illusive birdie, on the miniature golf course were challenges conquered by those who attended. All the tribes gathered at the Rodeo of the River for an evening of Patriotism, Bull Riding and fun! Our very own member of Colusa was lucky enough to grab the ribbon from the fierce calf in the challenge of speed and cunning.

Florida Eco offers Blackfeet many memories

March 12th, 2014 by Steve Ritthamel

February 14-16 of the year 2014 found the Blackfeet once again doing battle with the rest of the Fox Nation tribes as they entered the flats of Florida Eco - scene of much wonder and delight.

With heads held low, fine words of support were given in memory of the father of Brave Tony the Tiger and his Princess, who passed a few days prior into the great heavens. Fire water was presented to all Braves and toasts were exchanged, and the evening was calm. The great God of the weather was also sad and offered faint drops of water to honor the man who was taken too soon.

All the Blackfeet enjoyed a weekend of camaraderie, support of family and friends, war games, much good food, and made good memories with their fine band of Princesses as well.   Trips into the brush seeing livestock, gators, and all the wonders of the natural world were taken and recorded for all to view over the years with great joy.

We wish all Tribes of the Nation long lives and happiness.

Noonway.

Pre-camp Meeting of the Blackfeet

March 12th, 2014 by Steve Ritthamel

On Feb 13 the leaders of the Blackfeet Tribe gathered once again to plan their hunting expedition in the mighty box of goods.

They planned to select all goods from juice of cow utters, to animal muscle stuffed in tubes, to bellies of oink.
After fortifying their own bellies with wings of chicken and ale of Bud, they ventured out into the wilderness on road 50 with their bows drawn, they entered the box, killing their list of supplies until carts were overflowing with all good things for young and old alike.

Readied for their journey, they exchanged departure wishes until the following day of their venture to the woods.

All in attendance were met with happiness and satisfaction of completion of yet another bonding experience with young

Princesses and Braves alike.

Noonway!
