The event was originally established in 1991 as the Echoes of a Proud Nation Pow Wow to bring people together to share in a native spiritual celebration of life through drumming, song and dance; to come together to renew old friendships and make new ones.

Originally a Powwow, or “celebration” as it was called in the old days, was held in the spring to welcome the new beginnings of life. Often different tribal nations would come together for the occasion. During these general meetings the Native American Indians would settle arguments between different groups, form alliances, and trade with one another. It was also a time for families to hold naming and honoring ceremonies. The original Pow Wows often were of religious significance and therefore consisted of different religious songs and dances. Please note that at contemporary Pow Wows religious dances are usually not performed. A contemporary Powwow is a social event for everyone to have a fun and entertaining time, whether you’re a Native American or just interested in Native American cultures.
