11th Annual Wyandotte Nation Culture Days – The Gathering

Make plans today to join us September 11-12 as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Wyandotte Nation Pow Wow. If you cannot attend all days at least come and enjoy a special treat this year on Thursday evening. Wyandotte Nation citizen, from South Carolina, Robert Franklin is firing up his grill and preparing a feast of mega proportions – grilled, smoked, and BBQ pork as only Robert can prepare. It will be a great time to meet old and make new friends, a perfect time to socialize at the Wyandotte Nation Annual Gathering. Following the feast, also on Thursday evening, our good friend Trenton Stand, from the Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma will be leading a stomp dance at our Pow Wow grounds. Everyone is invited – all we ask is that you let us know you are coming. Please register by August 30th at the link provided below. Tizameh!
