"Brochure, Camp Ki-Yi"
At her home in Oakland, RI, Princess Red Wing offered day camps for children as well as a gathering space for local Native people. The 1937 booklet Rhode Island: A Guide to the Smallest State reported that Camp Ki-Yi was "where local Indians spend weekends. About 600 attended Tercentenary exercises here in July, 1936, some coming from the Middle West and Canada. Since many came in full regalia the ceremonies made a very colorful display. The celebration was arranged by Princess Red Wing, a descendant of an Indian Guard once in the service of George Washington." This quaint description belies the sizable and vibrant Native community that was sustained by Red Wing and other activists throughout the 20th century.
