Mission Statement

WHAT IS A POW-WOW? A pow-wow is a planned social event and gathering of Native American people. It’s a time and place to meet old friends and make new ones. Awards and recognitions are given to the deserving. Gifts are given. Honor songs are sung. It’s a time to show-off the new dance outfits. Pow-wow times give us the chance to celebrate and reflect on Native American Heritage. WHO PARTICIPATES AT A POW-WOW? Everyone!!! The public is welcome. There are no spectators. When the MC announces an "inter-tribal" song everyone is welcome to dance if they choose to. Just browsing the trader booths or talking to people makes you part of the celebration.

Description

Organized in 1992 by a local elder, this has become a tradition of local native and non native people to come together for this cultural event at a very sacred location.

We are looking for committee members to continue to help with planning, organizing, administration, grant writing, public outreach, etc. If you have talents you would like to share with us we would be delighted to have you and can show you the inner workings of organizing a pow wow!
