"I was serving my tribe before serving my tribe was cool": Gov. of the Zia
Pueblo on a guided tour this morning. The tour started at the oldest
church in the United States–a modest one-room Catholic adobe put up around
1660. From the church, we walked a few hundred yards to the plaza where
the Gov. challenged the athletes to a traditional foot-race across the plaza.
Only about seven of the athletes competed (and none of them were basketball
folks), but the Gov. put on a good show, finishing in the top three, and with
cowboy boots on.
I’m on the coat-delivery crew in the (early) morning. An organization
out of Pa.–Operation
Warm–is here. They distribute something like 50,000 coats each year
to young people. So before the camp sessions tomorrow, six of us are off
to the Santa Ana Pueblo.
