I often spend Independence Day enjoying the pleasure and privilege of attending the Annual Arlee Celebration as a spectator/visitor.
I enjoy everything about the powwow — the drums, the singing, the dancing, the regalia, the ceremony, the culture, the tradition… I also appreciate the honor and respect paid to Veteran’s on Independence Day — a day on which everyone should give honor, respect and thanks to the Veterans that continue to protect and insure our independence, as they have done for 238 years.
Everyone rises to their feet and removes head coverings for the Veteran’s Memorial Dance and the Flag Song, led by the Veteran’s Warrior Society. Veteran’s from all branches of service, from all Nations and nationalities, are invited to participate in this dance and be honored for their service to our country.
