The Native dance group "Yun Shu Kaa," with Vicky Johnson, left, Walter Soboleff Jr., Ray Wilson, Jeanie Lee and Maria Sheakley, perform a Native dance. The Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska has nominated Wilson for "Community Champion," through MetLife Foundation Older Volunteers Enrich America Awards. The local recommendation we received for this award came from Vicky Soboleff, the group leader for the children's dance group, Children of all Nations. "Ray tirelessly commits his time and energy to assist with the young men and boys of the group. He teaches dance techniques, knowledge of Native culture, and appropriate behavior," Soboleff said.
