We are very excited to announce that we will offer dance competition again this year! With the continued great support of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and our many other sponsors, we are again able to share this unique educational and cultural experience with our guests. Thanks to all of the dancers who joined us last year! We hope you enjoyed yourself and will return this time.
Everyone in regalia will receive free admission to the Spirit of Nations Powwow and a coupon for a full barbecue meal to be served in the cafeteria. We will also be providing locker rooms for dancers to dress for the competition. In the adult categories, the prize money is $300 first place, $200 second place, and $100 for third place. There will also be prize money in youth categories.
During each dance session, the Drum will provide several intertribals at which time registered dancers are expected to participate in the circle. At times the MC will invite the general public to join. At this time everyone is welcome to enter the circle. Come and join us!
