SIOUX CITY, IA
A fire will be lit on July 15th in honor and remembrance of the nine Sicangu children who will be traveling back home to finally lay to rest. A community meal/prayer service will be at 8pm, but everyone is welcomed to come earlier to pray and pay their respects at War Eagle Park in Sioux City, Iowa. This fire will stay lit until the departure of the nine children the next morning. We encourage anyone to come by and help with the fire and offer up prayers.
