to learn our traditions, powwow protocol and public speaking.
Participants represent the Tribe by attending various community

Special Event Board (Veterans SEB) Royalty participants.
Serving on Royalty requires a considerable commitment from the
participant and their parents and/or sponsor. Royalty participants
(including parent or sponsor) must attend all required events and
activities: organizational meetings, powwows, parades, fundraisers
and more. We encourage all Tribal youth ages 4-18 to join.

Veterans Royalty work with the Veterans Special Event Board (Veterans
SEB). They attend powwows, parades, fundraisers, meetings and other events
with the Veterans SEB and the Honor Guard. They interact with and repre-
sent all veterans. They also work with the Grand Ronde Royalty during events
and activities such as Restoration, parades and fundraisers. The Veterans
Royalty should know what a veteran is and the different military branches.
When Veterans Royalty attend events, they are expected to stay for the
duration of the event. This includes helping to set up events, meetings and
parades and dancing during Grand Entry, InterTribals and staying until
the flags are retired. Veterans Royalty should have their own regalia and be
willing and able to dance.
