We have changed the dates of the pow wow this year in hopes for more accomodating weather.

Grand Entry led by the armed forces honor guard is held periodically throughout the weekend in colorful regalia by Midwest’s four races—Red, Black, Yellow and White. Please see our Event Info page for a full schedule of events (as they are booked and confirmed).

Help the Native Americans mend the ‘sacred hoop’ of life--the goal to bring families of all races together, to bring down the walls of misunderstanding, to share a little of all heritages through drumming, music, dance, and story, and to understand that we are not that different. 

Pick up the children, grandchildren, relatives, friends and neighbors.  Bring a blanket or lawn chairs—join us for this special weekend at our brand new location. For more information about this event or how you can volunteer, register as a vendor or make a donation please visit our Contact Us page.

Our Goal:


We, as Indians say that the "Sacred Hoop" is broken. It means we have forgotten what is important, our families, our children, our communities, and our world. If we fail to take our proper place in each of these areas, then the hoop is broken.

We live in a new and dangerous world. If we can not teach our children to be accepting and tolerant, but also know who they are, and be proud of their heritage then we can begin to heal.

It is our goal to bring families and all races together, to bring down the walls of misunderstanding, to share a little of all heritages, through music and dance, and to understand that we are not that different.

We hope that you will be a part of this celebration and that you to will join us in the Mending of the "Sacred Hoop".

We are looking for performers and volunteers to help us celebrate this event. We have had thousands of people attend the event in recent years and we are looking forward to seeing and meeting even more this year!
