Moompetam Sleep-over 2013

Moompetam Sleepover


Aquarium of the Pacific


On February 17, 2013 we had the Moompetam sleepover at the Aquarium of the Pacific.  We had a great turn out from our Nation. We had 45 people for the sleepover and 27 people for the evening’s events.  We had a great time viewing all the ocean wildlife and touching the animals at the aquarium.  The great staff of the Aquarium provided us with pizza, snacks and also provided a movie and game time in the ocean theatre. Our group was split between the tropical and the northern exhibits for sleeping arrangements, which ever you preferred.  Wake up time came early at 6:30 am.  We had cereal, coffee and juice served in the Great Hall under the blue whale (the largest mammal ever).  We finished our outing with the seals, sea lions, and penguins as they are much more playful in the morning time.  I would like to thank the aquarium staff for the opportunity and all their hard work.  We look forward September 21-22, 2013 for Moompetam Weekend and next years sleepover.













News Articles

  • “The forced separation of immigrant children from their families is simply immoral and harkens back to a dark period for many Native American families. For decades, the U.S. government stole Native children from their parents and forced them into boarding schools hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away. Our communities know too well the intergenerational psychological trauma that will flow from the actions that the United States is taking today. Congress and the President should take heed of such abhorrent mistakes from the past and actually live the moral values this country proclaims to embody by immediately ending this policy and reuniting the affected children with their parents. Families belong together.”

  • WASHINGTON, D.C. | The House Appropriations Committee adopted an amendment offered by Representatives Betty McCollum (D—MN) and Tom Cole (R—OK) that would support tribal victim services programs. The amendment was adopted by voice vote with overwhelming bi-partisan support.
