"If today I had a young mind to direct, to start on the journey of life, and I was faced
with the duty of choosing between the natural way of my forefathers and that of
the... present way of civilization, I would, for its welfare, unhesitatingly set that
child's feet in the path of my forefathers. I would raise him to be an Indian!

"We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren
and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for
those who can't speak for themselves such as the birds,
animals, fish and trees."

The Vigo County Conservation Club would like to thank
everyone who attended for making the 24th annual
Gathering Of The People another great success!
A Special Thanks to the workers, the vendors, the
drummers, advertisers, sponsors and dancers
without which this would not have been possible.
Be sure and join us next year for our 25th
Anniversary Special. Hope to see you there!
