World Eskimo Indian Olympics
For time immemorial, Native peoples of the circumpolar areas of the world have gathered in small villages to participate in games of strength, endurance, balance, and agility. Along with these athletic games, dancing, story telling, and other audience participation games took place. This provided an opportunity for friendly competition, entertainment and laughter. The hosts provided food and lodging, and visitors brought news from surrounding villages and expanded opportunities for challenge building and renewing old and new friendships. This is the background of the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics and the atmosphere, which we seek to replicate.

Central Navajo Youth Opportunity Coalition (CNYOC)
Central Navajo Youth Opportunity Coalition is a collection of individuals, businesses and governmental agencies that is addressing together the necessity to provide Central Navajo youth with a safe place where they can congregate, fraternize, play, and learn. With the increase of high density housing, this is even more needed than ever as the communities' resources are minimal. Children in the Central Navajo Nation enjoy the beauty of their land, but this comes at a price. The nearest public swimming pool is ninety miles distant. We have no gamerooms, public gyms, miniature golf courses, indoor basket ball courts or bowling alleys.

Medicine Dream
Canyon Records recording artists Medicine Dream are an Intertribal First Nations band that performs contemporary Native American music.The group has been together since 1996 and is based out of Anchorage Alaska, USA. Their first International release, "Mawio'mi", received three nominations at the Native American Music Awards in 2000. Their music has been included on numerous compilation recordings, the most recent being Canyon Record's Voices Across the Canyon # 5, which won Best Compilation at the 2002 Native American Music Awards. They have toured extensively through out the United States, recently performing in Salem, Massachusetts for the Peabody Essex Museum's annual Maritime Festival, performed at Canyon Record's 50th anniversary concert in Scottsdale, Arizona and traveled to Ireland in 2001 performing for the World Peace and Prayer Day ceremonies

Ben's Guide to U.S. Government for Kids
Ben's Guide to U.S. Government for Kids is brought to the World Wide Web as a service of the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Ben's Guide serves as the educational component of GPO Access, GPO's service to provide the official online version of legislative and regulatory information.
This site provides learning tools for K-12 students, parents, and teachers. These resources will teach how our government works, the use of the primary source materials of GPO Access, and how one can use GPO Access to carry out their civic responsibilities. And, just as GPO Access provides locator services to U.S. Government sites, Ben's Guide provides a similar service to U.S. Government Web sites developed for kids.

Congressional Record: Main Page
The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session. GPO Access contains Congressional Record volumes from 140 (1994) to the present. At the back of each daily issue is the "Daily Digest," which summarizes the day's floor and committee activities.

The current year’s Congressional Record database is usually updated daily by 11 a.m., except when a late adjournment delays production of the issue. Documents are available as ASCII text and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Dakota Commemorative March 2004
On November 7, 2004, as in 2002, Dakota people from the United States and Canada will begin a 150-mile long Commemorative March through southern Minnesota in honor of their ancestors who were forcibly removed from the Lower Sioux Agency to concentration camps at Mankato and Fort Snelling in November of 1862. For the Dakota this commemoration signifies an opportunity to remember and grieve for the suffering endured by their ancestors as well as to relate a perspective of the event which has rarely been told.
