San Carlos — The San Carlos High School gymnasium was filled with enthusiastic Native American Indian Traditional Dancers and Entertainers immediately following the 46th Annual San Carlos Apache Veteran’s Parade on Saturday, Nov. 10, to provide memorable entertainment.

The San Carlos Apache Veterans Association posted the colors as a member of the Apache Medicine Society, Leroy Kenton, provided the opening prayer and a blessing song honoring all veterans.

The 602 Boyz Drum Group provided the flag song.

Bob Cassa was the Master of Ceremonies and introduced Mitch Hoffman, re-elected member of the San Carlos Apache Tribal Council, representing the Seven Mile Wash District.

Councilman Hoffman exclaimed, “Welcome to the San Carlos Apache Reservation. We have a long military history and as you can see, we have an annual celebration to honor our veterans. We should honor our veterans each day. Because of them, we are here today.

“I feel that I was re-elected because of their fight to give us the right to vote. Even if our people went to World War I and World War II, our people were not able to vote in the State of Arizona until 1948. Be safe throughout this weekend and once again, welcome to our San Carlos Apache Reservation,” concluded Councilman Hoffman.

The traditional dancing was provided by the Sosseah Zuni Dancers, Taheitan Fire Dancers, Dineh-Tah Fire Dancers, Duncan Salsa Dancers, Hopi Reed Clan Dancers, Navajo Singer Roxyanne Harvey, Cochiti Pueblo Naranjo Buffalo Dancers, Teutupe Polynesian Group, Apache youth Dancer, R.J. Duncan, Yellow Bird Dancers, World Champion Hoop Dancer, Kevin Duncan, Heshenkehk Basket Dancers, Chinese Lion Dancers and the Aztec Dancers.
