Where do I start with little Darlene. When I first saw this little woman, and how active she was. I thought I would like to get to know her and be like her, I came nowhere close to her dedication.
Darlene is a beautiful Ojibwe woman. Darlene was the first person I heard say Pida Migwetch, which means thank you in Dakota and Ojibwe. When I first heard Darlene say both Pida Migwetch, I was so happy to hear it in both languages, as I have both bloods running in my veins. Darlene was very active in many causes, like Coldwater, the 4 grandfather Oak trees, and especially AIM.
Today Sunday at 3:00 to 8:00 there will be a wake & celebration of her life at 31st St & Park Ave, at the old Office of Indian Ministries. I don’t know the name of the new church. On Monday there will be a wake up at Cass Lake where she is from. Tuesday will be the burial at Cass Lake.
So a Big Pida Migwetch to you on your journey. Say hi to Bob, Garrett, Chris, and Eugene and all the elders we have lost lately, and to all of our relations.
The Mendota Dakota Community and all of the people and members will miss you deeply.
Until we meet again dear little sister good bye for now.
I’m proud to be a Dakota and Ojibwe woman.
Tuesday January 25, 2011 at 7:00pm. We have lots to talk about.
Please check out our website, I have put some very interesting articles on the website.
Your Tribal Council.
Garrett began his spirit journey last night very peacefully. He was a gentle warrior ( keeping watch over the people) and a community treasure. Our prayers for comfort and peace surround Lynne and her family and Jim and Roxanne and their families and Garrett’s tribal relatives and his All Nations Family.
A Service of Celebration of Life and Thanksgiving will be held on Wednesday, December 29, at 4:00 PM at All Nations Indian Church, 1515 E 23rd St., Minneapolis, MN In lieu of flowers, the families prefer Memorials to All Nations Indian Church. Please bring a dish to share.
Food will be served following the memorial.
