Bozho {Hello}:

As part of your community, the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi is reaching out to extend an invitation to you to join us June 24 and 25 for our annual Pow Wow at Pine Creek Indian Reservation. The relationships we have built within the community are very valuable and it is important to us to share our culture with our neighbors.

This could be the perfect opportunity to attend your first Pow Wow, or we’d like to welcome you back. Admission is free with activities such as drumming, dancing, singing and other cultural events. Vendors will be selling Native crafts and traditional foods on-site. There will be a parade on Saturday morning. All ages are welcome.

Don’t worry if you don’t know Pow Wow etiquette. We’ll teach you what you need to know when you arrive. Pick up a brochure at the information booth or download one by clicking here.

We look forward to seeing you in June at the 2017 NHBP Pow Wow.

Migwéch {Thank you},
NHBP Tribal Members and Staff
