Donna's Journal
Article in Paper

My book has taken me to many places and this was one of the most interesting. I enjoyed meeting these folks and it was a wonderful banquet of vegetarian food we had at the Royal Chinese cafe.  The two Buddist nuns pictured here were actually just girls but very much respected by their people. The cafe donated the food that evening in their honor, which I thought was a generous and respectful gesture
since there were quite a few people present.

They were interested in my tribe's traditions which really cannot be covered in such a short time but I was able to tell them something of our mutual practices being that the Ponca people were peaceful and didn't go out for war, even though they did defend their families if the need arose (and it did since their neighbors were the Sioux).

Thankful to my niece for sending it, else I would have never seen it.
