We raised over $9000 to help get Kanatsiohareke ready to hold on-site events and classes at the community again after our long shut-down.

Special thanks to Caffe Lena in Saratoga for hosting us on Nov 13 and for donating all the ticketing, stage crew, food service and logistic support we needed.  Great thanks to: Joe Bruchac,  as emcee, musician and story-teller that day; to Jimmy Wolf and his band; to story-tellers Kay Olan and Perry Ground, and to Tom Porter for sharing his wisdom with the traditional Opening and Closing Words.   And many thanks to all our volunteers who made the live show and the online events the great successes they were.
