Pow wow in the D!
Dancers from Michigan came together after a 3-year absence to dance and celebrate good medicine at the AIHFS Powwow in the D on August 27, 2022. As Grand Entry awaits at 12pm dancers, fidget one last time with their regalia of beautifully bright colored beads and feathers so that every piece catches a spectators’ eye. Arena Director, Brian Moore, raises his arm and calls for Grand Entry to begin. Master of Ceremony, Don Lyons, calls for host drum, Painted Rock, to sing and co-host drum, Southern Straight, to follow. The powwow had two Native food vendors selling Native American food and homemade jam and various Native American vendors selling their handmade crafts. Powwow in the D also had informational booths handing out community resources. Powwow in the D was a beautiful celebration of dancing and acknowledging Native American culture. CHI-MIIGWETCH to all those who attended this year’s powwow. We hope to see you next year!
