Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians Pow Wow and Summer Gathering July 13-15, 2018

Join us for exciting dance and drum competitions July 13-15, 2018!

The Pow Wow, or Jiigtamok, has historical, social and spiritual value to American Indian people. Some trace the word powwow back to Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Anishinaabe. Early European-Americans used the word to mean a council or meeting. Powwows, or celebrations, as they were called, were originally held in the spring to celebrate the new beginning of life. People participate in traditional dance and song, visit with family and friends, make new acquaintances and trade arts and crafts.
