The Oshki-agojin Gathering existed for 4 years, organized & conducted souly through volunteer interest and efforts. The Oshki-agon Gathering & Grounds closed it’s fires on what would have been it’s 5th year of activity since the local indian council planned and  initiated it’s 1st PoW Wow to be held next door on the baseball field, on the annual dates of the Oshki-agon Gathering.

“the assertion of imperialism in conjunction with cultural appropriation lays the foundation for cultural genocide. the dominant meanings of another’s society renders the particular perspective of one’s own group invisible, at the same time, that  group is stereotyped , morphed, transformed into something other than it’s origins.

the dominating group’s world views, ideologies and perspective of reality is elevated, sanctioned, and universalized and becomes the norm that the other is obligated to accommodate.
