Ok, this post is not really about guiding real flying eagles, it’s a metaphor, what San Ildefonso Pueblo is really doing here is to raise visibility (and money) for the efforts of their Health Coalition and their summer youth program. I know for some this may be short notice, the event is 2 weeks away.
As their flyer says (pdf link is below), “Proceeds are for the Summer Program for the Pueblo de San Ildefonso Youth for education & wellness activities addressing awareness in diabetes, obesity, safety, drugs, alcohol, environmental and traditional values , etc.”
This is something I’m really glad to see happen and I support it, too often the youth on reservations don’t have structured activity in the summer and this leads to less than ideal outcomes later in life. San Ildefonso Pueblo is also one of the tribes in New Mexico that does NOT have a casino, so I’m guessing funds are limited from the tribal government.
I personally have friends and former classmates from San Ildefonso Pueblo.
If you are a golfer, please consider spending a day at the Towa Golf Resort to support this program.
