We welcome the Fall Season.As the days grow shorter and the evening arrives sooner, I hope this newsletter finds each of our citizens safe and well.This Fall season is a reminder of endings and new beginnings. It is a time of cooler evenings and less time mowing yards.It is a time of closing our gardens and putting them to rest until the Spring comes again. It is a time to prepare for changes in the meals we prepare and times spent retelling our stories this Winter.We are a people who know and understand these changes in the seasons.Although our gatherings during this last season were greatly impacted, we will again look forward to the days we can come together to celebrate our way with our family and neighbor Tribes.Please continue to reach out to our Elders and each other to share support and fellowship as we all walk through the remainder of 2020.Continue to check our website for Program and news updates. We continue to strive for improvements in the content and quality of information releases not only in this newsletter but also several social media outlets. Thank you to all of our Citizens that have stopped in at our Tribal Headquarters to visit both the Staff and our continually updatedTrading Post.As always, we remain #PeoriaProud.

Be Well,

Craig Harper
