34th Annual Kee Boon Mein Kaa Pow Wow

The sun shone and the crowds gathered to celebrate the huckleberry harvest and indigenous culture at Rodgers Lake for the Kee-Boon-Mein-Kaa Pow Wow August 31 and September 1, after the Women's Water Walk. More than 350 dancers and singers from dozens of native nations competed for prize money in several categories and divisions. On Sunday Norell Wright and Chelsy Olson were crowned Lil Mr. and Miss Pokagon after exhibiting their leadership and knowledge of Potawatomi language and culture to the committee. They and their families joined the head male and female dancers for an honor song afterward.
