Calendar 2017


Hau kola "Hello Friend,"
We are so pleased that your heart remains with helping us create a preferred future for Native People. We would like to thank you for standing with us and please read about our major events in 2016 below.

For this New Year, we also want to continue to spread the message that we can be fully Native and fully a follower of Christ through our speakers, social media, and print material. The need is still very real for our Native peoples, and we will not give up this task the Lord gave to our beloved friend, Richard Twiss. We will be continuing our annual programs like Mni Wiconi (Living Waters) Family Camp & Powwow, continue local volunteer participation in the native community, and the Rosebud Immersion Course. So we invite you to commit your prayers, influence, and financial support as we walk this path together-not as an organization, but as a family- as the WICONI FAMILY
