Bring Your Family to the Siletz Pow-Wow
Many different Tribal nations will be represented at the annual Nesika Illahee Pow-Wow on Aug. 13-15, 2010, in Siletz, Ore., held by the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. The public is invited to attend this family-friendly event, a tradition for the Siletz people and other American Indians.
All events, except the parade, take place at the Pauline Ricks Memorial Pow-Wow Grounds on Government Hill in Siletz.
“This is a great way for people to experience American Indian culture right here on the Oregon Coast,” said Mona Fisher, cultural education coordinator for the Siletz Tribe. “You can learn about the different styles of pow-wow dancing, see the beautiful regalia up close and even participate yourself in some of the inter-tribal dances.”
