From Hope for the First Nations Secretary Bria Fritsch:
About this time last year, I sent out an email about an awesome opportunity we have been given to help honor our dear friend Audrey Swan, who passed away in 2013. Ricky Smith, Jolene Craig and Hope for the First Nations have committed to sponsor a competition dance in Audrey’s memory and honor for four years at the Pine Point Powwow. This is year No. 2. Last year we collected almost $1,000 to give away to the winners of a jingle dress dance. This year is fancy men’s grass dance.
If anyone feels lead and would like to donate in honor and memory of Audrey, you can donate directly to HFTFN via check or PayPal. Just make sure to put “Audrey” or “Audrey’s memorial dance” in the memo line.
Checks can be mailed to:

I am heading up to the reservation for powwow on Thursday, Aug. 6, to help with sponsoring the dance and am really excited. Let’s make this year as awesome as we can for our dear friend! Miss her so much.
Thank you in advance!
