It's that time again; time to Powwow!
The Worcester Inter-Tribal Indian Center is again holding it's annual Native American Heritage Powwow on May 31st & June 1st, 2014.
A powwow is a native style cultural festival; where the traditions and values of Native American people are shared and celebrated. WIIC has been putting on public powwows in the Worcester area for more than 30 years now. If you've ever had an interest in learning more about Native American culture, our powwow is a fun and engaging way to experience our heritage and community. Our family friendly event has something for everyone.
At our powwow you'll experience Native music, drumming, singing, dancing, traditional regalia, flute playing, story telling, art and craft vendors, food, raffles, cultural activities and teachings, etc. Come and meet some of the different and fascinating people that populate our powwow campground for this weekend. They represent tribal nations from around New England, across the nation and beyond. You should not to miss this unique and exciting event. You'll be entertained, enlightened, and have a really great time!
Everyone is welcome! Our Powwow is open to the public and very inclusive of people from all walks of life. Hours are: Saturday 10-5pm; Sunday 10-4pm. Entry into the Powwow is free, but please be aware that the campsite has a $5 fee to park.
Treasure Valley has been our new powwow home for 5 years now. Our village will be set up down at the actual Boy Scout campground. So if you remember us from our time at Rutland State Park, you can now come down the road a bit and join us again at Treasure Valley. From Rt.122, turn onto Pleasantdale Road and follow the Powwow signs right to us (394 Pleasantdale Road, Rutland, MA). Come and check us out; you'll have a great time! We hope to see you all there!
