The Spirit of Sunka Wakan Empowerment Program is dedicated to:

Roy Henderson

Fellow educator, equine lover, and believer in the healing powers of horses. Here’s to you, Roy, your inspiration, and, in
your own words, “where miracles happen.”
 
 The Spirit of Sunka Wakan Equestrian Partnership Learning Program, would not have happened without your belief in
me, my passions, and my ideas.  Happy trails until we meet again.

belief in me quieted my doubts and unleashed my passions, dream, drive, and determination to complete my Equine
Partnership Learning Program.  Happy trails until we meet again. “Arff, arff!”
