Just three weeks from now, Kossacks navajo and betson08 will travel to the reservation town of Isabel for the tribe's annual wacipi (pronounced wah-chee-pee, the Lakota/Nakota/Dakota word for pow wow). The two will present the Quilt Guild's spectacular quilt along with a plaque honoring the late Georgia Little Shield (Eagle Wings Woman) for her founding of the Okiciyap pantry and center. The wacipi itself is being held in honor of Georgia this year.
Here is a photo of the plaque:
Names of the financial contributors to Okiciyap (as well as the quilters) will be included on a second plaque navajo and Betson08 will present. Thanks to the efforts of ZenTrainer, susans, 4Freedom and glescagal, who searched through all the bidding diaries and gathered the names of people who said they donated, we've collected most of the names already. But we don't want to miss anyone.
The list of names as we have it so far appears below the fold. If you participated in the auction and you don't see your name mentioned, please let us know in comments or by Kosmail and we'll be sure to add you. Also, please let us know if you'd rather have your real name on the plaque instead of your Kossack moniker.
If you would like to donate to Okiciyap, please send a check or money order here:
Isabel, SD 57633
Or you can donate by clicking on the button at the Okiciyap web site.
The names below will go on a plaque to be hung next to the quilt in the Okiciyap Food Pantry. If you've donated and don't see your name below please tell us in the comments and it will be added.
