Introduction~Four World's Elder's Council, August 15, 1992

On August 15, 1992, very respected and esteemed members of Four World's Elders Council, from across Turtle Island, concluded their 4th Council Meeting. The Elder's attending represented more than 100 Elders who had attended past Councils.

The three previous Four World's Elders Councils were held in Lethbridge, Alberta, December 1982, the Blood First Nation, February 1987, and Loveland, Colorado July 1991.

Each Elder was introduced prior to conducting a Traditional Headdress Ceremony during the closing evening of the 7th Annual "Choices for the Future" Symposium and Windstar Foundation Award Presentation, by Foundation Founder, John Denver, August 15, 1992. The Headdress Ceremony conducted by the Elders was followed by an Honor Dance.

These Sacred Ceremonies were videotaped at the direct and unanimous request of the Elders for historical reference. All of the more than 100 Elder's, but two, Andrea Axtell, Nez Perce and Mary Kahn, Dene, have since passed to the " Other Side Camp." Their Lives, Memories, Wisdom, Compassion, and undying Love will never be forgotten!
