THE GATHERING OF NATIONS SENDS SYMPATHY AND CONDOLENCES:
The Powwow world lost a well known champion Men's Fancy Dancer,
Jerry Cleveland, Jr. (Ho Chunk), just one day after the annual Pow Wow at The University of California at San Bernadino, sponsored by: The San Manuel Band of California Indians (Oct. 7, 8, 9, 2011).
Jerry was participating at the San Manuel Pow Wow over the weekend. On Monday, October 10th, many of the social networking sites had begun to mention the loss of Jerry and the outpouring of sympathy and support to the Cleveland Family. This shocking news has definitely hit at the hearts and spirit of all that knew and loved him. At the time of this notice, the cause of his death remains unknown.
On behalf of The Gathering of Nations, the Mathews family and the many pow wow people who knew him, Jerry will remain in our hearts and spirit as he makes his journey to the next world. We send our prayers to the Cleveland family for their strength in this time of sorrow. He is survived by his parents Gerald Sr. & Iris Cleveland (step mother), Annette Little Wolf (mother), his brothers and sisters, his children: Amber Rose, Naomi, & Courage Bear as well as his grandchildren and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The Family of Jerry Cleveland, Jr. is respectfully asking for financial assitance from friends and others to assist with any funeral expenses and other expenditures as necessary.

GATHERING OF NATIONS REPRESENTED AT A SOUTHWEST AIRLINES 40TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT
On Thursday, October 6,
Southwest Airlines hosted 65 of their community partners from across the country for an event entitled, “Connecting Hearts and Minds” on 95th floor of John Hancock Tower in Chicago, IL.
Melonie Mathews would like to thank Jackie Thompson and Christine Ortega for the invitation and hospitality that was extended to her (and
Gathering of Nations) from
Southwest Airlines' Connecting Hearts and Minds event held October 6, 2011. It was an amazing opportunity for the
Gathering of Nations organization to meet other extraordinary individuals from various non-profit and grass roots programs. Melonie extends a thank you to
Southwest Airlines for supporting the efforts of all of the organizations invited, in helping us to improve our communities and further our goals and reach broader audiences. It is not often that a large corporation, like a major airline company, makes such an effort to remain actively involved in working with the smaller organizations they support. This is just remarkable. We look forward to our continued relationship with
Southwest Airlines and perhaps making the efforts of the "Connecting Hearts and Minds" a resource to work with other non-profit organizations on collaborative projects in the future.
