Any and all efforts  they can think of we are here to help them put those ideas into action.

  Kicking off the Summer Season with Sugar Run Pow Wow

June 25-.26 2022

As we come together, some of us after a very long time apart, for Sugar Run it will be a time of reconnecting, drum, dance, prayer, and cleansing. Casting away the cold of Winter we dance some more...heal. ​

   We offer a Learners Weekend in July  where all actives are free. Both young and old can take joy in learning traditional Native dance, trying your hand at our drum or learn to make one of the different craft activities offered. There's something for everyone to learn and try, hands on participation has proven to be a most effective way of learning.  Let kids be kids and everyone can take a deep breathe. We are blessed with many generations of families whom have raised their children there,  learning about Native American  Crafts and Artistry.
