  • Milwaukee Pow Wow

    I heard about this pow wow a few weeks ago, and I was wondering if anyone knew any more about it. All I know is -I think- its the second weekend in November.

    Are you sure it is not the one in Chicago? It is the weekend of the 11th-12th-13th.

    It's a pretty good powwow...... good drums..... good dancers. It's a contest one. Some good people running it.

          Yeah the parity between dancers and singers prize monies is ridiculous, singing groups get little respect compared to dancers.
          You can't have a powwow without a drum!
