  • History - American Indian Society of Washington DC
    AIS decided to visit the children s graves at least once a year on Memorial Day weekend The military was curious at first about the caravan of cars which drove in left flowers on graves and departed without any contact with military authorities Throughout the years there has been little change in our visit We do leave plastic flowers instead of live flowers One of our members expressed her displeasure with the change but was advised that the important aspect was our visit not what we left behind Through the years individuals and traveling tribal people have stopped to pay their respects at Carlisle some leaving change money on headstones braids of sweetgrass and dream catchers in the young tree which has been there all along Veterans Wall As part of his work creating the Turtle Arena at Indian Pines AIS member Jay Hill designed and built the Veterans Wall which contains the names of AIS members who have passed on to the Spirit World At present the wall contains name plates for those veterans for whom we had full background information As we receive complete information on dates of birth death and military service plaques are added for both Indian and non Indian AIS veteran members The veterans wall was dedicated at our annual Mother s Day pow wow May 9 2010 At the dedication ceremony the names of AIS members who were members but have passed on were read aloud by members Pete Homer and Sam Wakefield Sam s memorial dedication read We have contributed to the American dream with the hope that one day we will live in peace as brothers and sisters under one flag For over 12 000 years our forefathers have hunted these lands Before the white man came we were free nomadic people
