Prairie Island Summer Pow Wow Wacipi Celebration

What is a Pow Wow (Wacipi)?
Sometimes called Wacipi (pronounced Wa chee pee), the powwow is a traditional Native American cultural celebration where the generations gather to socialize, dance, sing, visit, renew old friendships and make new ones. In Dakota language, the word “Wacipi” literally means “they dance.” Often held over a weekend, a Powwow is filled with songs and dances, singers with drums, and dancers in their regalia. Regalia (pronounced Re gail ya) is the proper term used to describe the highly decorated clothing worn by the powwow dancers.

The Prairie Island Summer Pow Wow, Prairie Island Indian Community and Pow Wow Committee are not responsible for lack of funds. The Prairie Island Summer Pow Wow is a drug and gang free event. All drugs and alcohol are prohibited from Pow Wow grounds.

Mark your calendar today so you don’t miss the next Prairie Island Summer Pow Wow in July at the Prairie Island Indian Community Wacipi Grounds in Welch, Minnesota.
