These photos were taken at a benefit concert for The Loonsfoot Center on Saturday October 28, 2006 the Unity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1025 E Oklahoma Ave in Bayview WI.
But the pictures capture, for me, for sure, the high spirit of the evening,
brought forth by the good cause of the Loonsfoot Center,
coupled with the freedom songs and wonderful voices, guitars, and banjos of “Dangerous Folks.”

I can’t find a great picture I took of Jim De Nomie, Director of the Loonsfoot Center Native American Studies, and Fin Dooley, and I don’t, for the moment, have time to add prose.
I wish my children could experience as much!
Please send me pictures and prose re Loonsfoot project for uploading on this site.
