fundraising thermometer Dear Tribe members and Friends,

We need your financial support!

Our community’s 50TH Annual Homecoming Pow Wow will be on March 21st (Saturday), 10am to 10pm, in McAllen, TX. We will also have our Tribe’s Reception on March 20 (Friday) starting at 7pm and our ceremonial Badger Run on March 21st (Sat), starting at 7:30am. This year, the cost for the Pow Wow will be about $6,300, as of 3-8-20 we still need $1700 (weekly updates will be posted). We can only hold this event for our community through your generous donations and raffle ticket sales. To help, you can straight donate at:

or you can purchase raffle tickets.

For this fundraiser, we have organized a raffle with five quality items made and donated by our members:
  1. A Pretty Traditional Woman's Shawl
  2. Beaded Belt Buckle
  3. A Three-Inch Beaded Rosette Necklace
  4. A Traditional Bone Choker
  5. A Ten-Inch Dream Catcher

Tickets are for one dollar, each with five chances of winning. And we are selling them at one sheet of 10 tickets for $10. A fundraising thermometer indicating funds raised so far will be posted bi-weekly on this page. (Tickets can be bought up to the day before the pow pow--March 20--if you use the online pay donate option and just let us know through a note that you are buying raffle tickets.) Two ways to purchase the tickets are:
  1. Print out a ticket sheet (see link below). Fill and mail with $10 per sheet to address on the ticket sheet; or,
  2. Purchase the tickets online at $10 per sheet using our "Donate Now" page: Include a note that the money is for "raffle tickets." We will fill the sheet for you with your name and information.

Remember, if mailing tickets, the time it takes USPS to deliver your mail to our McAllen address.

Please consider helping us sell tickets to your family and friends. Print as many ticket sheets as needed and take them to work, church, or family gatherings.
