We invite the community to experience the diversity and richness of Native American culture.”
Pow wow means high-energy entertainment in colorful regalia, a vibrant culture featuring song and dance, traditional craft vendors, storytelling and demonstrations. This year’s host drum is Silent Hill of Missoula, Mont., whose high energy and vibrant beat won last year’s pow wow drum competition.
