This is the lodge where Lunch Date stayed on Sunday until its release.
BE 10-02 stayed with me in my hotel room Saturday night. He wanted the TV remote.
Security was posted at the lodge where BE 10-02 stayed so it would be able to rest for its release time.
Security was friendly, but serious.
Honored elders lead the way to the release site.
An honor guard brought him from the lodge to the release site.
Prayers and blessings were offered.
There was a very large crowd anxiously waiting for the release.
BE 10-02 was ready to go.
He heard the Chena River and headed that way.
And over their heads he goes.
Higher and higher
These young ladies performed a blanket dance to raise donations for Bird TLC.
Thanks to the Midnight Sun Intertribal Powwow, all the elders present and all of their supporters.
