            I don't know about anything happening in Big Valley. Maybe that's the Iroquois Veterans powwow.

            The two powwows in July are Niagara Falls and Salamanca.

            Thunder Falls - sponsored by the Seneca Casino. July 8,9,10

            Alleghany - sponsored by the Seneca Nation. July 15,16,17
            The Iroquois Veterans powwow used to be on the second weekend in July. Jack Johnson and the Iroquois Veterans group were the sponsors. This might be the one that Smokedancer is thinking about. Maybe that one has moved to Big Valley. I don't know, and I ain't about to start a search for it.

            Good luck in finding out. Lemme know.

                  The marketing people are the same-and yes it was a bit displeasing that the flyers look the same because most people won't differentiate the 2. But Salamanca got a late start, and our Nation & casinos are sponsoring both pow wows so it made sense to utilize the marketing. Also, I call it Salamanca pow wow because of the city it's in. It's official name is Allegheny Veterans pow wow. But now for the big news in case y'all haven't heard........

                  Northern/Southern category split for Drum Contest
                  $4,000-3000-2000-1000 + honorarium for non placing drums

                  Northern/Contemp. & Southern/Old Style split for Adults (18-49)

                  Friday night specials:
                  Hand drum Contest
                  Iroquois Singing Contest
                  Boxing Match by the Knockout Factory
                  Plus food & craft vendors
                  Admission is FREE
                  Events start @ 6:00 PM

                  Drum Judge: Harvey Dreaver

                  We wanted to make it something different and hopefully bring some people over this way to experience our culture,while at the same time letting the people here experience thiers. Hope to see y'all there :)

                    Salamanca Pow Wow

                    NOTICE: The Seneca Nation of Indians is in no way associated with the North American Indian Veteran's Association (NAIVA) or the 2005 NAIVA Pow Wow (Aug. '05-Little Valley, N.Y.)

                    Does that sum it up? Seneca/Allegany Casino Veteran's Pow Wow a/k/a Salamanca Pow Wow (July 15-17, 2005).

                    Hope this clarifies. Just be there!!!!

                        yeah you could add more confusion by letting people know that the third weekend of july when the salamanca powwow is going on, there is the border crossing festival in niagara that same weekend ROFLMAO
                        Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

                          Okay now y'all! Let's just say that the third weekend of July is gonna be an awesome pow wow that everyone should come to. Nuff said LOL
                          For realz-there's been good feedback about this powwow already and with the addition of the new category splits, extra specials and...dum da dum dum........
                          An excellent feed for our participants (think buffet) and a sm. meal on sunday-we're trying our best to make everyone feel welcome back to Salamanca. I think with the good head staff we have selected, and raised prize monies-drawing people from near and far shouldn't be such a hard task. Our great fearless leader tells us to think positive good thoughts for the weekend (and we are). So again we invite one and all to the Seneca Allegany Casino Veterans Pow wow!!!
