Desert Horse Cafe was in attendance serving up fry bread and other goodies. They also donated a portion of their proceeds to the cause.
“We were gonna do a song for MMIP in a project and we just kind of kept brainstorming and figured you know what, what does the Rez love? Basketball,” said organizer Vincent Bird-Webster. “It’s a good way to earn money for a good cause and like I said it’s healthy.” Funds raised will go towards families impacted by the crisis by adding to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes MMIP account.
“We’re trying to get over the hump of COVID too and get everybody back out, so it feels awesome. You know it’s been a humbling experience. It’s been a very stressful event, you know, leading up to it, but now that it’s going, it’s just cool to see all the kids out here and see them having fun.” The event was organized not only to get kids and adults alike outside and engaged in friendly competition but to raise awareness for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Peoples (MMIP) Movement.
