This year’s Family Reunion Festival will be the Tribe’s first in-person powwow since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic. It includes Grand Entry as well as both contests and inter-tribal dances where everyone is welcome to enter the arena and participate.

Experienced dancers and Tribal members Tesia Zientek and Randy Schlachtun joined Hownikan Podcast for a refresher on powwow etiquette.
