Specials in Mt. Pleasant

Since the specials are not listed on the flyer, I thought it would be good to go ahead and announce them:

1. Chicken Dance
2. Men's traditional
3. Women's traditional
4. Contemporary Jingle
5. Old Style Jingle
6. Hand Drum

Also, there was a misunderstanding with the adult southern categories: There are Junior and Senior adult southern categories as well. There are NO southern golden age categories!

All of the specials will take place on Friday night.

I hope to see you all there! Be safe in your travels!

I have a few questions:

1 - Is the powwow going to be at the new powwow grounds? The new location I read about in your paper last summer? Or will it still be in the same place? (I hope it's in the same place because all the shade is nice). I need to know if I need to purchase a canopy or not.

2 - I saw the webpage and the way it looks under dance contest information, it looks like there are specials in every category. They have listed the 2 jingle dress specials, and who is sponsoring them, but then they have men's traditional, women's traditional (northern and southern combined), men's fancy (northern and southern combined), women's fancy and men's grass. The only categories that have sponsored listed are the 2 jingle dress specials. So my question is, are there specials also in the other categories or is that a typo?

3- Just to clarify, you are having junior AND senior adult categories for the southern categories? (men's s. straight, men's s. fancy, and women's buckskin & cloth combined). The way it's listed on the same webpage it says the southern categories are 18-49 years.

Good questions, glad you asked. There was confusion about all of the things you are asking. I am on the committee and just gave a report of the budget to our tribal council and all is good and ready to go.

1. The new pow-wow grounds is still in the works. They were going to try and have it finished this year but there were many gliches in the planning of it all. They are going to try and have it ready to go next year (we'll see). The location is the same as it has been every year. I do suggest however that you bring your canopy anyway. There will be an arbor around the whole arena, however, a lot of the trees had to be cut down and trimmed due to safety issues. It's still nice but the shade has been minimized.

2. As far as specials go, I listed them at the beginning of the thread. The committee is sponsoring 4 of the 6 specials. The 4 the committe are sponsoring are: Chicken, Men's traditional, Women's traditional, and Hand drum. The other 2 specials are being sponsored by the outgoing princess and a committee member who is a former princess. These are for ADULTS ONLY.

There is not a special in any of the fancy categories or grass. I will check into that as it must be a typo. Thank you for pointing that out.

3. YES, there are JUNIOR and SENIOR adult southern categories. I will also look into that on the web site.

I hope this clarifies any misunderstandings anybody has about the pow-wow. If there is anything else that is confusing or not clear please do ask.

We are looking forward to making everybody as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to extend our hospitality and make sure everybody is treated well and has a good time.

Safe travels everyone!!!

Thank you for answering all my questions.

I remember this powwow way back in the day when it was pretty small, just community members and Michigan/Ontario powwowers. It's always been fun even back then. It was such a shock to me when I came back there after being away several years to see how the casino and the powwow had grown! It's really nice to see that, and the committees have always been very hospitable and made it an enjoyable time for singers, dancers, and families.

I'll be there, with my canopy!
