Ponca Tribe of Nebraska Pow Wow
In 1994, the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska held its first annual PTN Pow Wow after the Tribe’s federal reinstatement in 1990. Traditionally, Pow Wows were held as a celebration for fall harvest, successful hunts and for all births, deaths and weddings of tribal members during the past year. It was also a gathering place for other tribes, relatives and friends to meet and celebrate.
The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska Pow Wow brings all of us together to our ancestral homeland to share, celebrate, reminisce and pass our knowledge and traditions on to future generations.
Free Admission – All Dancers, Drums, Vendors and Spectators Welcome!
