Experienced dancers and Citizen Potawatomi Nation tribal members Tesia Zientek and Randy Schlachtun joined Hownikan Podcast for a refresher on powwow etiquette ahead of the 2022 Family Reunion Festival.
The annual powwow is the main event of Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s summertime Family Reunion Festival. Several powwow rules regarding clothing, personal space and dancing exist. Knowing these expectations makes participating more comfortable and fun.
The Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s Family Reunion Festival serves as an opportunity for Tribal members to learn and participate in Potawatomi culture, and the Saturday evening powwow is the highlight of the weekend.
