Tribal nations’ first responders train at CDP

CDP training for tribal nations

Gathered in a ballroom-sized space Friday, 157 members of 47 tribal nations from 18 states stood and bowed their heads while Clarence Rolin sang.

Rolin, a tribal elder of the Poarch Band Creek of Indians, sang a hymn in Creek before he gave a prayer via video. It was the first time a hymn had been sung during the closing ceremony for a training group at the Center for Domestic Preparedness, said Wendi Feazell, public affairs assistant for the center.
