Oshke-Kno-Kewewen Traditional Pow Wow

The Oshke Kno Kewewen Traditional Pow Wow occurs every spring and is open to the community. It is named in recognition of the Pokagon Band community eagle staff carried by the Pokagon Band veterans.

The Oshke-Kno-Kewéwen Pow Wow Committee is seeking submissions for the 2017 logo to be used for t-shirt designs, the flyer, and the program for the upcoming Oshke-Kno-Kewéwen Traditional Pow Wow, to be held May 27–28, 2017 at the Rodgers Lake pow wow grounds.

  • Proposed logos should focus on the community eagle staff.
  • The Committee will accept submissions from Pokagon Band citizens only.
  • The design must be original work and not infringe on the intellectual property rights of any other person or entity.
  • Preference will be given to hand-drawn images from Pokagon Band youth 12 years of age and younger.
  • The artist who creates the winning designs for the Pow Wow will be awarded a 2017 sweatshirt and a $50.00 gift card from the Committee.
  • The winner (or his/her parent) will be required to sign a Declaration and Release Form prepared by the Pokagon Band.
  • While the Committee wants to support the community’s artists, the Committee reserves the right to accept, deny, or alter any or all of the designs submitted, and all decisions of the Committee are final.
  • Submissions must be received by February 20, 2017 at 5 p.m.
