Midwest SOARRING Foundation is pleased to announce our 2021 Janet Standing Bear Scholarship and our 2021 Myles Goddard Scholarship for all Native American students pursuing advanced degrees and trades in undergraduate or graduate education in any field. SOARRING is extremely grateful and appreciative to the Comcast Foundation for providing $5,000 in scholarship money towards the education of our people.

Midwest SOARRING Foundation invites all people to gather into an ever-increasing wider circle that preserves Mother Earth, and the rich traditions of the ancestors. We invite you to learn about the many intertribal Native American lifeways that provide wisdom and direction in our contemporary world. In keeping with this path, Midwest SOARRING Foundation works to maintain the traditions of the ancestors and to conserve and restore to health the natural environment.

We invite you to join our circle. Dance at our pow wows. Attend our cultural events and support the bison herd-our nation's greatest herbivore and symbol of hope and survival for all people. As you listen, you will learn. Together we become the Spirit of the ancestors.
