The letter was first disseminated through Facebook via the personal account of Council Member Lane Spotted Elk and has since been re-enforced by public posters. The events that are specifically cancelled include: Memorial Day Pow Wow, Lame Deer: White River Days, Busby and Commemorative Ride to the Battle of the Little Big Horn; 4th of July Chiefs Pow Wow and Parade, Lame Deer; 4th of July Rodeo, Lame Deer; Labor Day Pow Wow and Parade, Ashland; Boy’s and Girl’s Club Pow Wow, Lame Deer and Veteran’s Day Pow Wow, Birney.
