Letter 03: August 25th, 1970 Dan-to-John - The Pow Wow...
Dear John, August 25th, 1970
It's been a fun month. I made it through Summer school. There are about five more pioneer books I'll have to wait for the regular school year to read.
This past weekend, we went to an Indian powwow at the fairgrounds just outside of town. I was talking to one of the Indian kids there, and he told me that their tribe had been having their powwow at this spot since the Great Spirit first created people.

The beads on their costumes are way more detailed and pretty than I can draw!
You remember my red-headed little brother, right? He's only five, and he picked a fight with a high-school kid over Summer! When the Indian kids met him, they gave him an Indian name: "Red Tornado." Ha ha! I laughed so hard at that one!
I'm looking forward to this month. Mom is going to let me be in the Cub Scouts [again] this Fall.
Meanwhile, I need to finish this letter. Mom is taking us to the swimming pool. School starts in two weeks, and the pool will close for kids. I don't want to miss it. This might be the last time I get to swim until next Summer!
So, how have you been? What have you been doing?
