On March 31, 2011 Silver Bullet Productions hosted a fund raising event at La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe to support the development of a new documentary film, “Canes of Power.” Silver Bullet acknowledges and thanks major supporters of this event and film, San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and Western Art & Architecture Magazine. A special thanks goes to Charmay Allred for her very generous underwriting of the reception, as well as to the speakers and presenters: Conroy Chino (Acoma), Wes Studi (Cherokee), Governor Randall Vicente (Acoma), Governor Marcellus Medina (Zia), JoAnn Melchor (Santo Domingo) and Dr. Matthew Martinez (Ohkay Owingeh).

George Rivera (Pojoaque), Mayor David Coss, and Joe Garcia (Ohkay Owingeh).
