Intertribal Gathering Set at Fort Robinson State Park

LINCOLN – Fort Robinson State Park guests again will celebrate Native American culture during one of the High Plains’ premier powwows.

The 15th annual Intertribal Gathering will be June 13-15, 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, storytelling and the crowning of a princess. Vendors selling Native American crafts, food and other items also will be on-site.

The events are free to the public, but vehicles are required to have a Nebraska park entry permit. The permit can be purchased at outdoornebraska.org or at the park headquarters.

Contact the park at 308-665-2900 for more information.
