Hannahville Indian Community’s 46th Annual Great Lakes Area Traditional Pow Wow will be held in June 17-19, 2022 at the Woodland Gathering Grounds, located directly behind the Island Resort & Casino Sweetgrass Golf Course on Hannahville B-1 Road.
Native Americans refer to a “pow wow” as a gathering to celebrate life. It is a time to visit, feast, sing and dance together. Pow Wows are not necessarily a performance for an organized audience, but are a time of sharing, reinforcing and expressing Native American heritage. The public is always invited.
The first dance of each session is the Grand entry at which time all the dancers are within the arena at the same time. Grand Entries are the best time to attend, but singing and dancing continue for hours afterwards.
The Master of Ceremonies (emcee) will keep everyone informed throughout the entire event. They make sure to keep everything running smoothly and make sure everyone knows what’s going on. If you have questions at the Pow Wow, you can always ask the emcee or a member of the Pow Wow Committee. The Pow Wow Committee headquarters is located directly behind the emcee stand in the Southern Pavilion.
