Wondering why the poor attendance?

James Lawyer, Grangeville

I attended the Lapwai Community Christmas gathering. The assembly hall was filled to the maximum for the two sessions. I then attended the Kamiah Community Christmas gathering at the Pi Nee Waus. The attendance was about two-thirds of normal for this kind of event, and not one white person who was not a member of a tribal family. Someone could say this lack of attendance was due to poor promotion. But, I live in Grangeville and I became aware of this gathering. And someone has to wonder about the new folks in town: The Nez Perce Clearwater National Forest. Were they issued secret verbal orders not to participate in Nez Perce tribal activities?
