My relatives in these times of confusion, we realize how precious and delicate life is and especially how precious our elders and teachers are. Chief Danny John and First Lady Laurene John along with their grandson Jaynos and Summer came and helped us with the Peace and Dignity Preparation Ceremony. During this time it seems that the world had changed while we were in the 4 day Ceremony March 16-20, 2020 on the Cahuilla Reservation. Thank you all who helped and participated. Because of the current situation, Chief Danny John and family will be taking care of the Chanupa Ceremony on April 4,2020 for all of us. Keep them in your prayers, fill your Chanupa and send a prayer of unity, health and guidance for the world. If you can help they will have to travel and get supply’s for who knows how long.
Love, Health and Happiness, to All Our Relations,
Cheif Atl “Atlachinolli” Gonzales First Lady Cristina Gonzales

||Snow and windy conditions this evening giving way to some clearing late. Low 14F. Winds WSW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of snow 70%. About one inch of snow expected. Winds could occasionally gust over
Mom says it has been real cold and they need to go out and buy wood, but people are price gauging by doubling the price of the wood and only selling truckloads. They won’t break up loads and sell a little to put in there small vehicle.
If you have a truck and live by LBM they could use the help.
They are out today trying to get wood.
If you can help with a donation still use Walmart for now.
PS: We need to get them a truck.

This year at Little Big Medicine Sundance we were able to meet and talk about several things that needed to be taken care of and about how we were going to do things from this day forwards. Chief Danny John and his family worked for months on fixing the arbor and having things ready for everyone to come to the Sundance to have a strong prayer and we all agree that is all our responsibility and we would make an effort to do more work before the next Sundance.
One of the other things we spoke about is to support Danny and Laurene monetarily that it is getting harder and harder to survive these days without money especially when you live on the Rez (sad but true).
The traditional way of life is under attack, sheep and horses are being confiscated, fences are have been torn down that use to keep the sheep and and other stock safe and manageable this makes it hard to trade and live the traditional way .
We talked about some of us possibly committing to a monthly donation like a $10, $20, $30 dollar a month donation. There was much said but for now if you can send any donations please do if you use ZELLE for now use email@example.com email to donate.
Thank you in advance,
