MNCSS to host Father’s Day Walk/Run on June 18, 2022

Meskwaki Nation Child Support Services (MNCSS) will be having a Father’s Day Walk/Run on Sunday, June 18th at the Tribal Center. Registration begins at 8:00AM and the Walk/Run starts at 8:30AM. The route begins at the Tribal Center, to the ‘T’ and back, OR to the Clinic stock sign and back. They will have muffins, fruit cups and water. There will also be t-shirts for participants, while supplies last.

“I want to tell my reason again for this quick but meaningful design. I asked permission to use feathers created by the late Evan R. Kapayou. In 2014 he drew a Native on a styrofoam cup and gave it to me. He did it so quickly and I have kept it ever since. I copied the feathers and his ID signature the best I could. The middle design was created by Prentiss Wolf and is in the MNCSS heart logo. The works are on a t-shirt I received at an Art Symposium.

To me, we are not only celebrating the blessed Fathers who help in the creation of life, but everyone who helps shape and guide our beautiful children, our future generations. To the beautiful sun I see every morning and the artists who’ve shared a part of what beauty is to them. The words are for each and every one of you. This is to all THOSE THAT CREATE BEAUTIFUL THINGS!.” ~ Francesca Papakee
