Calendar 2015


Hau kola "Hello Friend,"
We are so pleased that your heart remains with helping us create a preferred future for Native People. This past year has not been easy at all, but by many standards was a great success. We would like to thank you for standing with us and please read about our major events in 2015 below.

For this New Year, we also want to continue to spread the message that we can be fully Native and fully a follower of Christ through our speakers, social media, and print material. The need is still very real for our Native peoples, and we will not give up this task the Lord gave to our beloved friend, Richard Twiss. We will be continuing our annual programs like Living Waters Family Camp, the Rosebud Immersion Course, and the NCAI Tribal Leaders Prayer Breakfast. So we invite you to commit your prayers, influence, and financial support as we walk this path together-not as an organization, but as a family- as the WICONI FAMILY
