Buffalo Messenger Become A Sponsor

Only through financial assistance can we succeed in our efforts. Many events and ideas for events are in progress, but we need help. One event, this year’s Powwow, will cost around $15,000-20,000 to hold. Expenses incurred include the Bill Miller concert; staffing; printing, advertising and distribution costs, as well as other set up fees. We will need to rent porta-johns, arrange for trash removal, and provide accommodations for staff and visiting Elders.We have designed a sponsorship program to help defray the costs of Buffalo Messenger's work.

Please understand, we are not capitalizing on this spiritual event or exploiting native culture or spirituality. Everything that happens here effects the world, and the next seven generations. This responsibility is immense, and can be overwhelming. We have been tasked with bringing the Elders and Spiritual Leaders here, and no one has the financial ability to meet this responsibility individually. It is only through the generosity and compassion of the People that we are able to fulfill this commitment.
