2015 Indian Community Conference...

the Apalachicola River Indian Community Conference will be a little late this year..Steven Pony Hill and I met about it yesterday and in light of the intense ARCITO re-organizational work we are doing at the moment and Billy Bryant's ongoing negotiation with the Calhoun County Commission regarding lands being set aside for the use of Calhoun County Indians, we will hold the conference, which is usually in March or April, in May this year...we will have a date after our next meeting in 2 weeks...

Reorganization of ARCITO beginning March 2015

Posted by Scott on March 14, 2015 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Myself, Pony Hill, and Billy Bryant met before the county commission meeting in Blountstown this last Tuesday to lay out plans for the reorganization of ARCITO membership, constitution, and bylaws, the negotiations Billy Bryant is conducting for sharing land base the Calhoun County Comission is considering forwarding to Calhoun County Indians, and the current status of the ARCITO petition in Washington DC. please email or call me with any ideas comments or the like as we move forward...-Scott
