This year we will be a day camp as we will be visiting three different sites giving our youth an opportunity to experience different culturally significant sites. We will start everyday at Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Village Resort before moving to the other locations to visit. Our community dinner will be at Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Village Resort on Friday,
August 17th 4:00-6:00 PM, the entire family is invited to attend. There will also be a special presentation from our youth and acknowledgement of their participation will be provided.

The goal of our Dee-ni’ Mvsr-xee-ye’ Wee-ya’ Lhetlh-xat is to revitalize, preserve and strengthen our Dee-ni’ Culture and Language. We are in a crucial time of fostering and promoting speech communities and promoting our self-identity through our language and culture. Acquisition of our indigenous communication is a vital link in reclaiming and promoting our spirituality, rites and communal wellness. We will be approaching and integrating our language in a number of activities such as: stick games, singing, dancing, storytelling, girls’ shell game, boys’ card game, hiking, swimming and several other enriching fun-filled activities.

It is our mission to incorporate our language and ways of life in all areas of activities. For without the continuation of our indigenous ways of life, we would be severing our relationship with our ancestors, and the teachings they have given to us to continue as Tolowa Dee-ni’ people.

Please complete the attached registration form and return it to Sri’-swvlh Mee-ne’ or the K’vsh-chu Administration Tribal Office no later than Friday July 27th, 2018 @ 5:00 PM. Space is limited, so please turn in your registration soon. This year will be a day camp. Camp will start at 8:00 AM on Wednesday, August 15th @ the Xaa-wan’-k’wvt Village Resort. Some transportation is available to pick up campers. If needed please call by August 3rd, 2018.

We will again be enjoying our culture and the company of our young tribal citizens in an interactive setting with our elders and community. Volunteers are welcomed and appreciated. If you are interested in volunteering please complete and turn in an application no later than July 27th, 2018. All volunteers, staff and contractors are required to attend a group meeting on Monday, August 13th & Tuesday August 14th. A special shu’ shaa-nin-la to all the parents and community members who participated last year, your assistance was invaluable. Please note that there will be a Head-Check Station upon arrival to camp. If your child does not pass the Head-Check, they will be sent home.

If you should need additional information, please contact
Amber Gensaw in the Waa-tr’vslh-‘a~ Department @ 707-487-3236
