Summer 2008 Message To Readers

Dear Friends,
             Hooray!  The 2007-2008 school year is winding down, and school is almost out. Students, parents, educators, and friends have driven ourselves crazy keeping up with the workload. Now that we're completely worn out, summer's  free days are literally a breath of fresh air.  It's time to  recoup, regroup, and just enjoy life.
            This summer's Native Village publishing schedule is listed below.  Now in our 8th year, Native  Village is a labor of love.  Thanks go to all NV  readers for your interest and support. Without you, I'd quit!
          Thanks also go to all the individuals, listserves, friends, educational institutions, graphic artists, and news services that freely share their knowledge and research with others. If you haven't scoured Indian Country on the Internet, give it a try. Generosity comes in many sizes, shapes, colors.
              In the meantime, feel free to browse the Native Village website.  We have hundreds of pages and thousands of links to keep you interested and entertained. And, as always, our website is free. 
              To all of you, have a wonderful safe summer. Spend time with family ... do good things for yourself ... become active in your community.  Use your vision and heart to guide you.  We are living in the generations prophesied to heal the world.  Together, people like you and I can do it!
              Thank you again for your support and generosity.
                                                                                        Gina Boltz,  Director
