Wyandotte Nation 29th Annual Pow-Wow

The Wyandotte Nation held its 29th Annual Pow-Wow Sept. 7-9 at the Wyandotte HS Gym (due to weather Friday) and at the Wyandotte Nation Pow-Wow Grounds.
During the three day event, veterans and grandparents were honored. In addition, the Wyandotte Nation honored Family Services Director Dana Butterfield as its Honored Person for 2018.
Rain forced the event inside Friday evening, but despite of some light rain Saturday, the event continued at the Pow-Wow Grounds Saturday and Sunday.
The Head Singer for the event was Gene Sovo while Redscout provided the Northern Drum. The Head Man Dancer was Chuck Bread, the Head Lady Dancer was Nicole Ponkilla, and the Head Gourd Dancer was Murry Rhoads Jr. The Arena Director was Dude Blalock, the Head Judge Jay Blalock and the Master of Ceremonies was Steve Kinder. Representing the Wyandotte Nation was the Wyandotte Nation Color Guard and Princess Sara Wright.
