ICTMN’s Weekend Pow Wow Guide


Now that the summer season has officially begun, one of the best things folks in Indian country can really enjoy are pow wows. And there’s something about the summer months that bring out a spirit of joy, excitement and peace.

This weekend, in South Dakota, its the 16th annual Leonard Peltier Day. The event is in place to commemorate Peltier’s activism, and call on others for his continued support. This event, which takes place today, is a beautiful tribute to kick off the other pow wows taking place this weekend.
