I am a dance faculty at Iowa State University. My blended special needs group with non challeged dancers were performing next to a native American Village where Ralph and his crew were inspiring youth as well as anyone who gathered at the Iowa State Fair. He heard me speaking about inclusion of all peoples and the power of dance to transform. He asked if I would bring dancers to his event later in August. We have attended the PowWow I believe for a decade. I am grateful for the work the Ralph has done in the public schools as well as other outdoor venues that we have performed at again in tandom. His "tribe" of gathered volunteers are kind, respectful, and welcoming to all performers. The group never fails to embrace the world. Even when we are rained out it is considered a blessing and as always the fun continues all in good humor. Modeling one of the greatest assets for the individual coping with difficulty with humor. I am honored to be a small contributor to such a worthy goal as this group encompasses.
