Miami, Florida, District #2 Meeting, April 2015

CPN citizen and Florida International University School of Law Professor David Walter was our gracious host for the District #2 meeting in Miami, Florida on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Thank you to all who attended. The size of the group allowed for a significant amount of visiting time and interaction among all of us. Among the attendees was our wisest/farthest travelled honoree, Mrs. Mary Fair of South Carolina (a DeGraff), and our youngest honoree, from the Simonson (Melott) Family. Floridian Ted Welfelt shared his always-growing knowledge of traditional techniques for crafting drums and eagle bone whistles, and preparing feathers for ceremony. Next year’s Florida meetings will take place in the Clearwater and/or Boca Raton areas of the state. The photos here include meeting photos and a "travelogue" of my time in downtown Miami and in the Everglades and Big Cypress, including time on the Muccosukee's lands just north of Miami. Beautiful country!
