The fourth annual Harvest Moon Pow Wow, sponsored by the Native American Education Association, Inc. and local businesses, will run Friday through Monday, Sept. 4-6 from 10 a.m. to sunset daily. The pow wow will close at 5 p.m. on Labor Day Monday.
Officials with the Native American Education Association, Inc., said the organization is determined to have one of the best pow wows in southeastern Ohio.
The purpose of the pow wow, according to organizers, contributes greatly to the revitalization of traditions and culture of the Native Americans. The pow wow serves as a gathering point for Native Americans to share experiences, discuss items, demonstrate, sell and exhibit their work. Food vendors will be on hand to give a taste of Native American cooking.
Veterans from the American Legion and Gallia County Vietnam Veterans will open the ceremonies each day to give patronage and honor to the United States.
The artistic drum for this event will be Red Circle, a group that is known throughout the eastern region of the United States. They will be bringing a following of dancers in full regalia with them.
