Fort Robinson State Park guests again will celebrate Native American culture during one of the High Plains’ premier powwows.
The 17th annual Intertribal Gathering is moving to a traditional powwow format and will be June 18-19, a week later than its usual date. Featuring traditional dancing, drumming and singing in a family-friendly environment, the event annually attracts hundreds of dancers and spectators.
An array of activities will complement the dancing, including a 5k run. Vendors selling Native American crafts, food and other items also will be on-site.
Participants will receive free parking, sponsored by the powwow committee, but spectators’ vehicles are required to have a Nebraska park entry permit. The permit can be purchased at outdoornebraska.org or at the park headquarters.
More information may be obtained by calling 308-207-0510.
