Because of my mother's passing, and because of the holiday season, Native Village weekly publications will be suspended until January 11, 2005. (I will, however, update the Opportunities area and let you know when it's posted.)

May you all enjoy your Christmas vacations and winter breaks with family and friends. Hug the children, hug the elders, and be good to yourselves.  During the 2006 New Year, let us work together to establish peace and understanding among all peoples of our world.

Be safe, be healthy, and be happy. Thank you for allowing Native Village to be part of your lives.
