This Powwow is a unique cultural event to this region. Native Americans from across the country and Canada will share their culture with us through dance, drums, music, song, and story telling in the breathtaking natural setting of the 165-acre Okehocking Preserve - named after the Okehocking band of the Unamis Tribe (known as the Down River People) of the Lenni Lenape Indians.

This traditional powwow is organized by Red Willow Education Center, a non profit organization whose mission is to bring Native American teachings to all interested people, and Willistown Township under the guidance of a Micmac elder. A Master of Ceremonies will describe the ceremony and dances for the audience, and the audience will have the opportunity to participate in such dances as the Intertribal Dance, the Potato Dance and the Veteran’s Dance. Powwow Grand Entry will be at 12 noon each day.
 

The Marketplace, opening at 10 am each day, will feature Native American crafts and cultural goods, homemade wares, food, local art, community organizations, and more.
