Dear Healing and Wellness Coalition Members and Friends,
It has been an unforgettable Journey that we have traveled together in the interest of healing and wellness among the Cherokee people as well as many of our friends and allies.
It has been an honor and a pleasure to go on this journey with you all. We have accomplished great things together. We enumerated many of the things that we started or participated in that have since been implemented and taken over by the tribe and various tribal programs in the minutes of our final meeting.
We've brought speakers for conferences, we've honored people at Tribal Council, we've raised and donated money. In our final act of dissolution, we donated money to the Cherokee Seed Corn project, the Center for Native Health and to Analenisgi and the Rally for Recovery. We've donated Wellbriety books and workbooks, participated in walks for good causes throughout the years, held hands and shared tears through births, funerals and everything in between.
It is our prayer and hope that the ripples sent out by this Coalition into the community will turn into waves of healing that will be felt far into the future.
And as we go our separate ways now, we do so with wonderful memories and prayers for the best wishes for every one of our members, friends and allies as we continue the work the Creator sends us out to do in our individual and beautiful ways.
Every one of us strong in our conviction and loving in our hearts.
So thank you. Thank you so very much for sharing your ideas, your hearts, your energy and your willingness to do the hard work. We will be ever grateful and we are humbled by this beautiful experience we shared together.
And going forward,
Dodadagohv'i. ᏙᏓᏓᎪᎲᎢ. (We shall see each other again.)
