Santa Fe: Mayor of the city of Santa Fe, Alan Webber, has officially proclaimed 24 May 2019 as the “Friendship Between Santa Fe Indian School, Sikyong Dr. Lobsang Sangay, and Tibetan People Day.’’
The announcement comes on the day CTA President Sangay gave a rousing commencement speech at the Santa Fe Indian School’s 2019 graduation ceremony which earned him a standing ovation.
The proclamation begins by recognizing His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s visit to the city and the high school back in 1991-a true testament that His Holiness forever touches the lives of people he meets.
Recognizing the 27 years of friendship and cultural exchanges between Santa Fe Indian School and the Tibetan People, It states that it hopes the relationship will continue and “foster a deep understanding and mutual support for self-determination, language and cultural preservation and friendship.’’
