Souvenir from the powwow

I got a little plaque from the powwow. From Walking Eagle Crafts, Akwesasne - a plaque with Shekon on it -  Sekon or Shekon means Hello in Mohawk. The oldest radio station in Akwesasne uses the call letters CKON, which can be said the same way, although I've heard French speakers saying it like "C'est con" ("It's stupid") as a joke.
