Next Inipi Sunday Aug 7th. Rebuild the Inipi again Aug 5th and 6th, there was storm damage.

As you are aware, the Mendota SweatLodge was recently damaged forcing us to cancel our last Inini Ceremony.  Our plan is to devote the first weekend of August to build a new lodge and have a Ceremony that  Sunday evening and we are requesting use of the DuPuis House at 4:00 until 10:00 PM that day. I did talk to Jim Lee and he did say that he would be available to close up at 10:00 PM and he mentioned that he would probably make you aware of this.  Our plan is to remove most of the used rocks on that Friday, August 5th, begin building the new lodge after 4:00 PM Saturday the 6th and have the Inipi Ceremony the next day, Sunday, the 7th.
Thank you for your consideration,
