It was a crystal clear, beautiful end of summer kind of day in Salmon, September 7th, 2018. So beautiful in fact, the wind was still. Despite our prayers & dances, it never did blow which meant our summer long kites, never took flight. They were still honored though, one by one – story told – art appreciated. We are only left to imagine what a sky filled with these colorful renditions would look like among the back drop of the continental divide, alas, we’ll have to wait another year. It may be Salmon’s version of a hot air balloon festival when conditions are right. For now, we’ll have to continue to rely on the joy of the next generation of kite builders as we witness what it’s like to be a kid, running unencumbered in nature flying a kite you put together mere moments ago, feeling the tension of the string pull against your momentum as you propel yourself forward into a dreamscape. We want to thank Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center for hosting an amazing event. We were happy to help teach some #STEMed to families as they went station by station building their aircraft. It was a fantastic event that saw over 200 people! Thanks Salmon community for making this event so memorable. We hope to be part of future events like this moving forward.
