2019 Delaware Pow Wow
Everyone is welcome at the 55th Annual Delaware Pow Wow on Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-26, 2019 at the Fred Fall-Leaf Memorial Campgrounds near Copan, Oklahoma, 3 Miles East of Highway 75 on Road 600. The Delaware Pow Wow is held on 29-acres just north of Copan, Oklahoma, on original Delaware allotment land owned by George Fall-Leaf. George’s brother Numerous Fall-Leaf was the one who came up with the idea to have the powwow in 1964 and individual tribal members, not the tribe have kept it alive since that time, working as the Delaware Pow Wow Committee.
