8th Annual Spirit of the Wolf Native American Festival
We are pleased to announce the 8th annual Spirit of the Wolf Native American Festival
This will be a family friendly event, everyone is welcome.
This year's Pow Wow will bring to life the rich history of the Native American tradition through song, dance, food and games. It will be a weekend to celebrate and experience cultures, values, and traditions with a gathering of Native American tribes from across the country.
A powwow, derived from the Narragansett word powwaw meaning "spiritual leader," has historically been a gathering of North America's Native people. More modern powwows have become a cultural celebration for Native American and First Nations people to meet, dance, sing, socialize and honor their cultures.
For nearly a decade Spirit of the Wolf Native American Festival has been a space for the community to meet old friends, make new ones, have fun, and dance on their own reservation. Another tradition is Spirit of the Wolf's outreach to local area charities.
"We are a proud people with a rich history," explains "Spirit of the Wolf" member Betty Overrocker, "who are inspired by our ancestors to continue our traditions and remember our past. We are excited to share these traditions with our community so that they may better understand our people, our customs, and our legacy. It is a wonderful weekend for every one of every age to come and enjoy themselves."
