New Team on the Crow Reservation

Crow Team 6 arrives in Crow Agency

The first day of the Global Volunteers experience is always one of excitement and anticipation: How many people will there be? What are their backgrounds?  Where are they from?

All met at Billing’s airport, around 1pm with goal of setting out to Crow Agency soon after.  To make things more exciting, one volunteer showed up a week to early, but luckily for her she was spotted by Phyllis, our team leader.

After we arrived in Crow Agency, we quickly found Head Start, our “home” for a week. We prepared  dinner and the result of our teamwork was wonderful baked chicken with potatoes and carrots and a delicious salad!

After dinner, Ross (our host) drove us around the reservation and showed us the arrangements being made for the upcoming Pow Wow. The almost-full moon produced an eerie but beautiful glow on the teepees that had already been pitched. I cannot wait to see the Pow Wow underway, with all the tribes in attendance!

We are beginning to get to know each other. If my previous Global Volunteer projects are any indication, I think we’ll all be like the best buddies by the end of the week, and we’ll be sad to part ways.

But let me not dwell on next Saturday; for now, I’ll say: “Laissez le bon temps rouler”, or, in English: Let the good times roll!
