  • Annual tribal gathering canceled for lack of funds

    Tooele, Utah (AP)

    A shortage of funds forced the cancellation of an American Indian powwow that for 15 years had been part of the annual Festival of the Old West.

    Powwow chairwoman Donna Chavez said private donations have typically filled the gap as funding from sources such as the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce declined.

    But this year the $10,000 to produce the powwow couldn’t be raised.
