27th Tour- Saturday

We saved best for last! The last day of the tour we ended with an evening with Billy Mills!
Billy told the group the amazing story of his Olympic gold medal win. If you're not familiar with it, learn Billy's story here! He also spoke about the importance of culture and spirituality, and about his stance against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
After Billy spoke, all the participants had a chance to get a photo with Billy.
Finally, we raffled off a Billy Mills 50th Anniversary Pendleton blanket! Tour Participant Vernita won and took it home!
Until next year!
