local nat'l indian day, what to do?

okay, so we do the free frybread and stew,
we tried the film festival and fashion show,
we do a mini pow wow
we even do poetry, singing, and other talent show
but when you're a small tribe, how do you get your locals
jazzed about national indian day?
if it's not just for the local people, but you try to draw outside (white folks) in....what clever ideas have worked for you?
suggestions please.

what we did

we turned it into native pride week. so had something every evening after work at 6 pm.
monday-opening ceremony, council proclamation, native dancers, hot dogs and soda
tuesday-native unity, poetry contest, handdrum contest and family portraits (saving one for the archives) plus ice cream social
wednesday-native pride parade: rez cars, rez dog contest, commod bod contest, balloons, tv coverage, nachos
thursday-traditional foods and healing: speaker discussed native plant uses; then native americans and the vote-tribal chairman talked about the importance of n.a. participation
friday-indn fry bread contest, ndn beans contest, native jam fest and talent show (we even had native hawaiians perform)
saturday-environmental clean up-clean the river and clean the road ways bar-b-que.
so perhaps you could use these ideas for your next year
btw we had a terrific turnout.
