Our first stop on our Summer tour was at the Sun Valley Indian School near Holbrook Arizona. We did a concert at 3:00pm for their chapel service on Monday May 7th.
A new friend of ours, Tom McNeil, who we met earlier this year when we were in Idyllwild California, introduced us to them. He used to serve at this school as a cook. Tom even drove from California to be part of this event.
Can you believe that their school song is Sacred Warrior and that they are called “The Warriors”. The school administrator heard Tom Bee’s version of our song and used it for the school. Click on the image above to go to their website.
We had a great time there meeting the “Warriors” and the staff and have an open invitation to return whenever we are driving by.
RainSong plans to spend this Summer of 2012 primarily in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
On the way from Arizona we plan to stop at a few places to share our music and storytelling. We hope to arrive in Fort Wayne Indiana by May 25th.

The following weekend we will be at the Miami Nation Gathering and Powwow. We will open this gathering with a concert on Friday evening June 1st. Gates open at 6:00pm concert about 7:00pm. Location near Rockville Indiana.
We are still putting together a summer schedule and are open to invitations. In the past we have had to spend a short time with folks, but hopefully we can go a little deeper and stay a little longer with those who would like that.
Then sometime in August we plan to begin driving back to Arizona to base ourselves there for the winter with ministry in Arizona, New Mexico, and California.
This doesn’t mean we can’t be anywhere else this Summer, as we have been invited to go to the Pine Ridge Reservation in July.
