Mohican Pow-Wow Underway

15 Sep , 2018  

This weekend experience Native American history, culture, and lifestyle first-hand as the Great Mohican Pow-Wow returns for its 34th year.

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday,, Mohican Reservation Campground and Canoeing will be busy with traditional Native American ceremonies and activities. Rated as a top 100 show in the United States, this event is taking place this weekend .


This is an event for the entire family. Pow-Wow time is the Native American people’s way of meeting together, to join in renewing old friendships and in making new ones. This is a time to renew thought of the old ways and to preserve a rich heritage. Note that this is a real pow-wow, not a hobbyist show.

This year, activities include storytelling, dancing, tomahawk throwing, music, a fire starting demonstration, a drum competition, and more. Over 40 artisans will work with basket making, pottery, painting, feature work, and knives. The event is held rain or shine.
