#TodayInHistory World War I ended today in 1918.
"at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918"

During World War I, the original American Indian "Code Talkers" of Choctaw descent assisted by using their knowledge of the Choctaw language to transmit coded messages. Choctaw messages transmitted by field telephone and in writing led to major successes in the battles of St. Etienne and Forest Ferme, contributing to the war's end.

Las Vegas Intertribal Veterans Pow Wow

Pahrump Social Powwow
Friday, November 22 - Sunday, November 24

At the Pahrump Social Powwow, it is a time to gather for Native Americans and non-natives alike. Pahrump is home to the Western Shoshone and Paiute tribes. On Nov. 22nd - 24th organizer, Paula Elefante, anticipates at least 500 to 750 people will pass through each day.The powwow will start on Friday at 10 a.m. and go through Sunday till 3 p.m.

The celebration begins with a spiritual side where participants gather to give thanks. Veteran Native Americans are also honored at this time and then three days of dancing begins.

Marge Pesek of the Review Journal once called this Pahrump’s largest cultural event of the year, which brings Native American tribes together for three day celebration of beating drummers, dancers, musicians and craftsman from tribes all over the West.

The powwow celebrates the Native American Culture and preserves the cultural heritage, and even renews friendships. Visitors to the powwow will experience colorful dancers in elaborate Native American regalia. At the powwow, dancing is a major part of the gathering. There are kid dancing competitions and adult competitions. Each tribe has their own tribal dances. There is even a time where all the tribes gather for an intertribal dance.

In addition to dancers, Native American craftsman display their wares and one can expect to sample many dishes of Native American food as well. The Powwow also usually attracts at least 30 to 40 crafts booths. During this cultural celebration would be a great time to pick up that unique Christmas gift.

Our California Inter-Tribal Family of the Monache Gathering Lost a great Spiritual Leader, One who was a great teacher and great Friend to us. Ron Wermuth, Spiritual Sweat lodge leader and Founder of the Monache Gather in Bone Creek,California, Was laid to rest today September 1, 2013 after the last night Cry Dance in his honor. Ron Wermuth was always about caring for the people,praying for the people, and teaching the people. He gave so much of himself to the Native First Nation community. Ron and his wife Carol started the Monache spiritual gathering 26 years ago to help people on the red road and to educate the community about the Shoshone and Inter-tribal way of life through Sweat Lodges, Bear Dances, Herbal talks, Elder talks, passing of sacred stories. Ron Wermuth passed away last Saturday August 24,2013 at age 72 due to cancer.

Good Journey Ron Wermuth! We will miss you!
