Here's proof that I wasn't lollygagging today. I'm in the right corner (sunglasses), standing next to emcee Jennifer Drake. Kathy Plonka/SR photog is in the lower right corner photographing the event. In the foreground, Jeanie Louis and her granddaughter, Northstar Garvais Lawrence, 10, discuss their famous ancestor, Chief Morris Antelope. (Eden Irgens' Facebook photo)

Sorry, I should have warned you that I was going to the dedication of the statue of Chief Morris Antelope. Nice turnout. Inspirational talks from Chief Allan, Quanah Matheson and artist Cheryl Metcalf. I appreciated what Chief Allan, the chairman of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe said: This (the dedication of the statue on the banks of the Spokane River) may seem like a small thing. But it is a big thing to us.
