Pow-Wow

Lac du Flambeau Chamber of Commerce

The 31st Annual Bear River Pow-Wow is set for this weekend in Lac du Flambeau.

Tribal spokesperson Brandon Thoms says the Pow-Wow is a gathering of tribal people and visitors that includes singing, dancing and food.....

"...it's basically a social gathering where storytelling and reuniting with friends or family that live outside of the area. It's almost like a homecoming..."

Thoms says this type of gathering has long historic ties, but has been known as a Pow-Wow since the 20th century...
