For the People Pow Wow Memorial Day Weekend

Looking for something to do over Memorial Day weekend? You can learn about and celebrate the rich culture of Missouri’s Indigenous peoples by attending “For the People Pow Wow” in Jefferson City on May 25 and 26. If you have been or never been to a pow wow, you’re in for a festive treat! The public is invited to enjoy food, dance, arts, crafts, and singing. The event is free with Native American dancers from Oklahoma and Missouri performing Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Master of Ceremonies is William Branson of Columbia. 

The Missionary Society for Preservation of Traditional Values (MSPTV) is sponsoring the pow wow with generous support from Missouri Humanities. Additional sponsorship includes the State Historical Society of Missouri Richard S. Brownlee Missouri Local History Grant, the Jefferson City Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Budds Center for American Music Studies.
