"My name is Tony Wahweotten. I want to thank Larry Mitchell for having the ability to let candidates, including myself, post campaign messages on his web site. Igwien Larry. It's great that we have one more avenue of communication for our use. We have been battling bad information and no information for a long time. I, also, want to thank those of you who voted for me.
We had 10 members of our Nation willing to step up to a very difficult position. I thank all of you for your efforts. I've taken time to gather up my signs and close my campaign pages. I thought maybe I would hold on to them just in-case I get another wild hair - aye. As for the Nation, we still have many challenges ahead of us and it is every-ones concern. We have many intelligent members out there who can make a difference. For example, I have been seeing here on the blog a campaign "against" the Amendments and "for" the Accountability policy. It's not like if we have one we can't have the other. We can take the best parts of either suggestion (that's all they are) or bring forward new ideas from the parts of these ideas that we like and forget the rest. That is working together.
For you angry native bloggers, it's unhealthy that we fight amongst ourselves. Nitte eshwepsiyen? Kego mi'katgek. These kinds of reclusive conversations, names being withheld, remind me of a spider called the Brown Recluse. Poisonous and not liking the light. Raid. For some, a new fiscal year begins. For others like myself (business owners), it is known as 4th quarter. As a business manager, year end reports are near and I am looking to expand in the new year.
I will be taking a break from political ventures until I feel the same unease I did coming into this most current election. This is my favorite time of the year, Indian summer. I know, now, that I'll have time to enjoy the fall and winter seasons. Not only is hunting season just around the corner, as well as fall and winter chores, but the holiday season as well. I'm, also, looking forward to the We Ta Se Veterans Pow Wow. My son, Note-kno-schkuk, has been asked to perform the Head Boy Dancer duties. He accepted and hopes to do a great job. The event is usually a little tight, but !hey!, where else can you find a Pow Wow in November? Stay healthy."
